My Burns Guitar Site

Welcome to my Guitar web pages

These pages started as a general miscellany and ramblings on some of my interests, over the last couple of years though it has become largely guitar related. Therefore it is now a completely guitar related resource. There is information on value, specifications and models of Fender Guitars and Yamaha Guitars. My Burns Guitar pages are on a separate site see my links pages or menu above.
I welcome E-mails on any guitar related matter, will do my best to help with any queries and also happy to receive any information opinions or corrections on the models I cover.


Updates are frequent but for ease I am now listing them on the home page as I go along. Please bear in mind that the price database on the guitar information pages is updated at least weekly and often more frequently than that.
