Burns Weill Super Streamline Bass

Built in 1959 with body by Jim Burns and electrics by Henry Weill this example is so different from my “John Godfrey” bass–this neck is ultra slim, with an offset back and 2 extra frets, also the body is larger and contoured. This wonderful example is currently awaiting restoration.
