Supersound Double Cutaway Bass

With electrics by Alan Wootton and body by a carpenters shop in Hastings, this bass dates from between 1959-1963 and is one of possibly around 20-30 instruments built after Jim Burns left Supersound (but originally designed with his assistance in late 1958). Brian Davis of Dave Edmunds’ band, the Raiders, used one of these in 1963.
