Vintage 60's Baldwin Burns 706 Semi Hollow Electric Guitar w/Vibrato & OHSC

Welcome bidders, you are looking at an incredibly cool vintage piece. This is the late 60's Baldwin Burns Model 706 electric guitar. 25.5" scale. 1.67" nut width. 15 5/8" bottom bout. 1.46" deep. Serial #: 0914. 7.2 lbs. The Baldwin guitars are infamous for their cool designs and incredible tone. This 706 has a semi hollow body based on the 335 design. This lets the guitar breathe for a nice acoustic resonance yet allows you to drive the pickups without fear of feedback. Dual Baldwin humbuckers sit in the center block- this gives you the best of all worlds. The pickups grab the acoustic resonance and body vibrations simultaneously, allowing for a full, rich tone. The bridge pickup clean gives some really nice sparkle but with a full body. The neck humbucker has a great warm 'jazz' tone. Add some gain and these babies really open up- one of the best sounding overdriven guitars I've ever heard from this era- especially a semi-hollow. The overdriven bridge pickup has a great low end midrange character with an exceptional pick tone- lots of sustain for a bridge pickup. The neck pickup absolutely drips with thick overdriven goodness- perfect for bends holds or blues licks. Each pickup has its own volume and tone controls allowing you to really dial in each pickup perfectly. The maple neck here has a slightly chunky elliptical profile- you could think of it as an extremely soft V. At .82" thick at the 5th fret, this neck has enough mass to add to the overall sound- great tone transfer- but feels thin under the hand. The rosewood board has a classic 7.25" radius- easy for chords, and on this particular guitar, makes for sweet bends as well. This is an incredible player- not to mention the action is extremely comfortable- just over 3/32" at the 12th fret. Amazing. The truss rod here is the Burns Gear Box. The tremolo here is the icing on the cake- all of your favorite pitch effects are right there- smooth as silk. This has the original Baldwin bar. The look here is incredible- some really nice light figuring on the top and back with an absolutely gorgeous burst finish- a bit of sweet reds. The body and neck are fully bound, raised Baldwin pickguard, chrome hardware, and that beyond-cool Baldwin 'scroll' headstock. Very good condition- there are the typical clear coat 'cracks' present. The frets here are clean- just professionally setup. This auction includes the original Baldwin hardshell case(accessory compartment is missing). This is your chance to get your hands on an incredible example- the late 60's Baldwin Burns Model 706. This is a no reserve auction. Don't pass this by!
