Shadow


This is my guitar a 2011 model

Burns London issued two models of this guitar in 2003 as club series, this is in essence a variant of the Marquee. There is a Shadow and a Shadow special both described in Trevor's pages.
At some point after 2010 the special disappeared from the the Burns list of available guitars although the web page is still there hidden away.
Changes after 2010 included the tuners are no longer Grovers but Burns locking tuners and again I suspect production may have been moved to China at some point.
