Burns Marvin The Shadows Custom Limited Edition Fiesta Red from 2003


Considered the most influential British group in the world before the arrival of the Beatles, The Shadows have been the pioneers of European rock since 1958. Hank Marvin, the guitarist of the group was one of the most influential guitarists in the world. In 1963, Jim Burns, the founder of the Burns Company, and Hank Marvin worked together to design a guitar that would have the style, sound, and playability that The Shadows needed. So they developed the "Burns Marvin" which Hank played on record, stage and screen from 1964 to 1970 when, unfortunately, his guitars were stolen, never to be seen again.
