Found these 3 volumes regarding the History of Burns
on the Vintage Guitar Magazine website.
Apologies if this has been on Shadowmusic previously.
Cheers...George.

These were originally published in Vintage Guitar in 2009. Slightly out-of-date but still worth a read. The next couple of chapters to be published will deal with the Shadows links to Burns.

Thanks a bunch George - I got absolutely nothing done this morning because I just had to read all 6 parts of this fascinating article!

It reminded me that between late '79 and early '80 I used a Baldwin Vibra Slim bass. I'd landed a job as a bass player but not having one of my own, had to hire one and that was all the local music shop had! 16 gigs later I saw sense and realised that the money would be better invested in buying one. I bought a Maya copy of a Precision, in a rather nice natural finish with tortoiseshell scratchplate, and kept it for about a year and a half, and a further 52 gigs.

in retrospect, I often wonder why I didn't just buy the Baldwin.

:D

These days, being an OAP, I usually think first before I buy another piece of kit, namely, how many gigs do I need to play to pay for this? :D
