Bought new in late 2019, since discontinued so quite rare. Virtually like new, nothing noticeable but gigged moderately. Comes with Burns signature strap and a gig bag. Collection only.
The Burns Marquee Bass just oozes quirky retro British charm and tone. Based on the original Burns 1964 Jazz Bass, the Marquee Bass has that unique Burns aesthetic that'll help you stand out from the crowd. The Marquee Bas features a basswood body, a 34" scale length, and Burns' famous Tri-Sonic for a rich sound you won't find anywhere else.
Burns Tri-Sonic Pickups:
While Burns' unconventional guitars are adored by vintage aficionados, it is actually their Tri-Sonic pickups that are perhaps more renowned. Synonymous with Brian May, who fitted his iconic Red Special guitar with a set of Tri-Sonics, these pickups feature ceramic magnets and are constructed unlike typical single-coils. The coil of each pickup is wound into an oval (rather than on a bobbin) and fitted directly around their ceramic magnets. Each pickup features two magnets joined end-to-end, which are mounted onto a flanged metal base that causes the magnetic field to be produced all around the coil and not just in the centre. This leads to a richer sound with plenty of harmonic overtones and sustain.
