Many people has asked me where to buy my book
”Pearls and crazy diamonds – fifty years of Burns
guitars”, as it is hard to find.
You can order it here. That book is a good start to learn a
little bit more about Jim Burns famous guitars.
We will later on give you much more history on this website.
The book is hardback, rather large and has about 100 pages in full colour. Very nice professional pictures of most Burns, Baldwin and Hayman guitars. In the book is also a story about the Shadows, facts about the different guitars, pictures of famour Burns players and some Burns circuitry diagrams.
The book has contributions from old Burns employees like Les Andrews, Norman Houlder and Bob Pearson, important suppliers like Eddie Cross, Burns experts like Paul Day and Alfons Lahaye, Baldwin and Hayman people like Steve Kreuger and Mark Davies.
