Jim Burns

Posted on: 4th August 2009

Nice collection and a trip down memory lane to a few of my first ‘finger slicing’ guitars! My dad new Jim Burns in the late 50’s / early 60’s in Sunderland, Tyne & Wear and he gave my dad and the other guitarist (who were both in a band called the Dynatones) a couple of his guitars for free but they went on the purchase the first Fender Stratocasters in the North East from Windows in Newcastle (Fiesta Red of course!) I got the guitar bug also and have acquired a few Strats of my own.

Very interesting site – thanks!
