Cat Burrito

Show us your sunbursts

Recommended Posts

We've had threads showing off black basses, white basses, Wal basses & pretty much everything else. I'm not aware of one celebrating the humble sunburst. So in a bid to get a thread on Sunbursts started, here are mine;



from left to right we have a Resonator Bass (from China via Texas!?), a Hofner Verithin Bass, a Hofner Beatle Bass, my original 80s Precision & a 70s parts Jazz bass. I didn't reallise I'd become such a sunburst fan!



What you got? Show 'em here!

Nice one Burrito and a lovely collection.

Here's my '58 bitsa, although it has also appeared in the precisions thread.

I have three: my Alleva-Coppolo LG4 (a super-Jazz), my '71 Fender P/J and my Fender Tony Franklin fretless. Here's pics of first two

and my TF (not got a pic) is a more brightly-coloured twin of my '71 and looks just like this:

1983 SQ Squier Japan Precision...

Non Original, but cool as anything.

This stands next to a Custom Shop Jazz and shares my playing 50/50.

Erm, just the one and it's kinda old and not in very good nick. Can't imagine it'd be of any interest to anyone, but in the spirit of making up the numbers here we are -

Is that a pukka 72 or is it a Bravewood?

Genuine Fender, though clearly not all original... Full story is on page 6 of the 'Precisions' thread - [url="http://basschat.co.uk/index.php?showtopic=116578&st=100"]http://basschat.co.uk/index.php?showtopic=116578&st=100[/url] - Further to the info there, all the road rash was 'as is' when we acquired her.

I've often wondered who she belonged to and how she came to be in such a state.

John Birch SG Bass. Two days after he phoned me to say it was nearly finished he was found dead in his kitchen, he was 80 years old.
This is the last guitar that John Birch personally worked on.
