Burns Of London Marquee "S" (Special) - This guitar was part of a large collection and is a "Brand New" 16 year old guitar - It is a 2002 and the MSRP of $1150 is from 2002 - Burns guitars were made in London and the Marquee series was introduced in 1999 and were produced in Korea - This was done to have a more affordable model - In 2009 production was changed to China - See www.trevormidgley.com/BurnsGuitars/Marquee.html -
The Korean Marquee's sell for approximately $800 - $1500 and the newer Chinese models sell for $400 - $600 - The Marquee's are not that rare - But, I have been watching them for over 5 years and I have never seen a "S" (Special) model - Burns USA became the USA distributor for only 2-3 years - This is a very rare "S" model and a very rare Burns USA model and includes a factory Burns USA hard case (This guitar was made in "Korea"/There are no Made In USA Burns Guitars/They were made in China starting around 2009) - I have also never seen one of these cases that read Burns USA - The "S" model has a bound body and neck, Grover locking tuners, the headstock is color matched to the body vs natural on plain Marquee's and the Alder body has a Photo Flame finish - The switching on these is cool - It's the standard 5 way ( neck, neck middle, middle, middle bridge and bridge ) but they differ a little because the neck middle and middle bridge are out of phase - Also, there is a push pull tone knob - If the knob is pulled out in bridge position, the neck kicks in also - If the knob is pulled out in middle position or either of the neck middle or middle bridge, then all 3 pickups kick in - Great sounding single coils and so many different sounds available including working tone on bridge only pickup - Gold hardware that is not discolored or faded - Sold for $970 16 years ago without the case - Sell with the case for $750
