Dallas Tuxedo Vs. Burns Weill: The Bass Wars Part Three!

Posted on: 9th April 2018

Bass Wars: The 1950s!

In Bass Wars Part One we had Shergold vs. Hayman, in Part Two it was Baldwin vs. Grimshaw!

Now in Part Three we feature two bass guitars from the 1950s: Dallas Tuxedo and the Burns Weill.

The Dallas Tuxedo Bass was built in the UK and is a very early mass produced electric bass guitar. The Burns Weill Super Streamline Bass (to give it it’s full name) has impeccable history what with being made by Henry Weill and Jim Burns, but does the unique body design help or hinder playing it?

David Greenaway plays both and gives his verdict!
