Burns / White Bison / 1964 / Guitar For Sale

The Burns Bison features a classic body shape with its inward curved body horns and advanced pickup selection system. With its distintive batwing headstock, this guitar was Jim Burns' greatest creation and has a strong look, sound and character. The Bison was obviously made famous by the great Hank Marvin from the Shadows, and could be compared with the Stratocaster, but differs at quite some points. The solid alder body features a bolt-on maple neck with a rosewood fretboard and its unique 'scroll' headstock design. The Bison has a scale length of 25 inch which gives a different tone when compared to a Strat. The Rez-o-Matik pickups sound almost the same as the Tri-sonic pickups, but with a little less output. The controls include one master volume, two tone knobs and a 3-pickup selector switch. There used to be a second pickup selector, which has been removed and the hole is filled with epoxy, just like the repaired pickguard crack. The Rez-o-Tube vibrato looks like an excentric piece of equipment, but is actually the reason that Hank preffered the Bison over the Strat, because it is perfect for Shadowy vibrato usage without detuning. The condition of this Burns is very good with traces use including dings and scuff marks, and a few touch ups primarily on the two horns and the lower bout curves.

I have always been opposed to being trapped into a job eight hours a day to purchase the free time to do what I enjoy. That’s why i started the Fellowship of Acoustics. The fellowship of acoustics was founded by Rudi Bults, Guitarist and obsessed with tone and wood. The idea was offering real expertise when trading and selling the finest instruments in the world from our showroom in Bergentheim, Netherlands. Helping others find the right tools and enjoying an atmosphere that’s unhurried, honest and informative that’s my go. We are nothing like the "supermarket" style music stores, but specialize in string-things only. We are widely known for Flattop guitars but also sell electric, mandolins & banjo’s, amps, parts, and accessories. Our store has earned the reputation for being a great place to shop for the best products and service.
It is our hope that this new website - much more than a list of "gear" for sale - will serve as an example of our commitment to offering a more personal approach, a friendly atmosphere, and an ultimately more satisfying experience for our friends and customers.
If you have any questions just dial +31-523-232205 or e-mail info@thefellowshipofacoustics.com My name is Rudi Bults, and I’m always here to help out. Wherever possible, we would recommend that you visit our store and experience our instruments and service first hand. However, because of our high standards you can be confident of ordering online from us. We hope you enjoy your visit to our site, and welcome your feedback.
