Burns Bison

Burns Bison

Built by Burns Actualizer Ltd in 1981, this very rare black beast features 2 Burns humbuckers, 5 way selector switch, Fender type vibrato tailpiece and a Burns Scorpion style headstock with signature Bison logo. Retailing then at £370, this was probably one of the best Burns of the 80s. Check the Historic Guitars page for an extensive write up.
