Burns Magpie - rare British-made guitar from 1980s


This is a Burns Magpie guitar from 1980. Apparently this is quite a rare model, and this one seems to be even rarer with its 6-on-one-side "Magpie" headstock; others I've seen pictured have the same 3+3 headstock design as the Burns Steer.

The seller tells us that:
The guitar sounds amazing. [The pickups] completely scream. So much attack, yet very full sounding. Great clarity and power.
Unfortunately I can't find out much else about this guitar. If anyone reading this has more info, please don't be shy in letting us know!

This guitar is currently up for auction on eBay. It had a starting price of £0.99 and the bidding has already begun. It'll be interesting to see what it sells for (so long as the reserve price is met).

For more about Burns see the excellent Burns Guitar Museum blog.
