Burns Marquee with Bound Body

Postby Oldrenders » Thu Dec 28, 2017 7:16 pm

Hi. First post here so I hope someone can help.
At a recent gig, I came across a Burns Marquee guitar, with an unusual bound body. I believe it dated from early 2000 or 2001 and may have been a custom model. Had the usual high standard of construction and a zero fret.

Can any of you folks supply any further info or pics, or anything about these nice instruments? I would like to find one for myself :)
Thanks
Geoff

I have the red and blue Marquee S. Seems to be based on the Marvin "S" but with a Burns de luxe Vibrato. Has a flat top with photo flame finish. Bound neck painted scroll headstock and oversize Tuners. Gold plated hardware. On my red one I have replaced the arm with a Staytrem and added gold tip and knobs.shame about the screen printed Burns London. May get EC to make some
