Burns-Baldwin Vibraslim Electric Guitar w/ Original Case - 1966 - Natural Flamed Maple - Good Condition
Up for sale is this vintage circa 1966 Burns-Baldwin Vibraslim electric guitar. Folks, this is a cool one, but it does have some minor issues (as most of these do, whether they're described as such or not), so please read the entire description and see all of the photos.
This instrument is in very nice condition for its age, but does show some wear. There is some finish checking (pictured) and some superficial small "cracks" at the neck pocket (pictured), which affect nothing other than being cosmetic.
What really sells this one is the natural/blonde finish that shows off the fairly heavy flamed maple body. It REALLY pops in the light and makes this one of the most attractive Baldwin guitars that we've ever had come through the shop.
The instrument is all original with the exception of the nut (not the best replacement job, pictured), the knobs, and the missing tremolo arm. The biggest issues on this one is that the tone controls do not work, so that will need to be addressed at some point. The three way switch and volume control both work as they should and the original pickups are loud and strong.
This guitar has just been gone over and set up by out tech and plays great with low, comfortable action. The neck is straight and it's an absolute joy to play. On top of that, did we mention how cool it looks yet?
The original hardshell case is included, which is fairly uncommon to see. The case is in very nice condition for its age, but does show wear from protecting the instrument over the years. There is a cool music store tag on the case above the handle as well, adding to the history of this exceptional instrument!
These Baldwin guitars ALWAYS need a little love and often aren't described as such. Don't miss out on this one, because it's truly a good guitar that, with a little bit of love, will make someone a great guitar from here on out.
