{"id":4794324582478,"title":"1965 Baldwin Burns Nu-Sonic Vintage Electric Guitar - Cherry","handle":"1965-baldwin-burns-nu-sonic-vintage-electric-guitar-cherry","description":"\u003cp\u003eThe Nu-Sonic Model debuted in 1964 as a “student model” guitar or bass that was the Burns answer to Fender’s Mustang and aimed at the same demographic: guitar-crazed teenagers on a tight budget. It was discontinued in mid-1966, making the Nu-Sonic rather a rare one.\u003cbr\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eThis Nu-Sonic has Baldwin etched into the scratchplate, although this guitar was made by Burns in London. Baldwin (primarily a piano\/organ manufacturer from Cincinnati, Ohio) was the under-bidder to media giant CBS who successfully bought Fender for 13 million dollars on January 5, 1965. Baldwin's answer to running second to CBS was to search out another guitar company that was on the block and found Burns of London, bought it for a reported 380,000 US. \u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan\u003eThe guitar is very compact, with a\u003c\/span\u003e\u003cspan\u003e scale length of 594mm (23 3\/8”) and a very lightweight agba body. The cherry finish has faded out a little particularly on the back of the neck, as shown, and has regular lacquer checking and playwear, although is in fantastic condition for a guitar that is over 50 years old. It is supplied with a new tweed-style hardshell case, and it still retains the arm for its gear box vibrato set-up.\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan\u003eWe have taken care to try to clearly photograph the finish checking, hardware corrosion and dings\/marks\/scratches.

1965 Baldwin Burns Nu-Sonic Vintage Electric Guitar - Cherry

Product Description

The Nu-Sonic Model debuted in 1964 as a “student model” guitar or bass that was the Burns answer to Fender’s Mustang and aimed at the same demographic: guitar-crazed teenagers on a tight budget. It was discontinued in mid-1966, making the Nu-Sonic rather a rare one.

This Nu-Sonic has Baldwin etched into the scratchplate, although this guitar was made by Burns in London. Baldwin (primarily a piano/organ manufacturer from Cincinnati, Ohio) was the under-bidder to media giant CBS who successfully bought Fender for 13 million dollars on January 5, 1965. Baldwin's answer to running second to CBS was to search out another guitar company that was on the block and found Burns of London, bought it for a reported 380,000 US. 

The guitar is very compact, with a scale length of 594mm (23 3/8”) and a very lightweight agba body. The cherry finish has faded out a little particularly on the back of the neck, as shown, and has regular lacquer checking and playwear, although is in fantastic condition for a guitar that is over 50 years old. It is supplied with a new tweed-style hardshell case, and it still retains the arm for its gear box vibrato set-up.

We have taken care to try to clearly photograph the finish checking, hardware corrosion and dings/marks/scratches. Please view the photos carefully during consideration, and if you require more shots, simply contact us and we will be happy to provide additional photos.
