Burns Weill Fenton

Built during the 1959 partnership of Jim Burns (who built the bodies) and Henry Weill (who provided the electrics) this rare early example, with rosewood fingerboard, was the Burns Weill budget model which retailed for £35. The styling was based on the Guyatone LG50 (which was also branded as Antoria and Star).
