  • Shadow Bass - With Rez-O-Tube!

    Original Marvin Shadows Bass

    Burns® London acquired the original Shadows bass in 2005 which inspired us to re-release this great guitar as a special limited edition.

    Close research revealed this bass was quite different to the production model of 1964.

    The electrics are custom wired to give a wider range of pickup selections. As well as various cosmetic changes including headstock size, pickup spacing and selector switch angle.

    This isn't a very high quality video but it's great to see The Shadows all playing their Burns axes!! Nice bass yes??

    ...okay...I had to throw this next video in, too. It's a Fender bass but who doeesn't love the song?? It's a great disco take on a classic instrumental.
