Baldwin Vibraslim Bass
In September 1965 Jim Burns & partners sold Ormston Burns to the American Baldwin Piano & Organ Co. for £250,000. This rare Vibraslim is the same as the previous Burns Vibraslim with the controls in the pick guard. It retailed for £133 and, in 1966, was replaced with the “scroll head” version with body mounted controls.
This bass also stars in the second Bass Wars video! David Greenaway plays Guy’s Baldwin Vibraslim and Grimshaw Short Scale – watch the video to see his verdict:
