Supersound Single Cutaway Bass
Built by Jim Burns with electrics by Alan Wootton and dating from early autumn 1958, this is the oldest surviving UK commercially built solid electric bass and almost identical to the first bass made for Teddy Wadmore of the Ted Taylor Four and used by him on TV's Jack Jackson show in that year. Check the Historic Guitars page for an extensive write up. For more information about Supersound see the Story of Supersound website.
