Super cool Baldwin-made Burns Virginian. The Virginian is a fully electric semi-hollow guitar with a laminated mahogany body and flamed sycamore top. The two "Bar-O-Matik" pickups are mated to the patented fully adjustable "Rezo-Tube" vibrato bridge. The neck and pickguard hark to a dark time in Burn's history following Baldwin's purchase of the firm when many models were standardized to reduce production costs. Identical bound necks with trussrods were used on all models. Three-knob "density' tone circuit consisting of a stacked pickup with a blendable second coil in the neck position combined with a single-coil at the bridge. Heavily braced cutaway mahogany body was called the "Controlled Resonance" design, developed from the slightly earlier "GB65". An excellent example structurally, with all original hardware. Heavy finish checking throughout the instrument and missing the tremolo arm.
