About This Listing

Circa 1940s Abbott Victor Burlington III Archtop guitar with Bill Lawrence floating pickup installed.

This guitar has been played and has some wear and marks but is a rare example of this fine guitar makers work.

It features a hand carved solid spruce top and highly flamed solid maple back and sides. The serial number is 281 nd is visible on the label inside the F hole with a faint signature also visible.

The tuners are replacement white button Kluson deluxe and the scratchplate is also a replacement I think. The neck shows heavy play wear and there is some fretwear in places but the not too bad but its a playable guitar. The strings are recent but not new and possibly should be a little heavier gauge on this guitar.

The body has lots of small marks as you would expect from a 70+ year old instrument.

The guitar is a lovely rich honey colour and and the fretboard is bound Ebony.

Comes with period hard case which is a little tatty but does the job.

Please note - this guitar is of its age, if you are looking for perfection its not for you but its pretty good overall.

Will be well packaged and boxed for shipping.
