About This Listing

Hayman 3030  Solid Body Electric Guitar

Early 70's In good shape with nice finish checking. It is missing the truss rod cover which displays the serial number and the bridge pickup, though functional with good output, is only working on one coil- these issues are reflected in the price. The guitar appears to be all original and comes with case.

A little history-  Hayman Guitars overview

Published in "The Burns Book" by Paul Day, 1979:

In 1969 Jim Burns joined ex-Vox employee Bob Pearson to develop a new range of HAYMAN guitars for the Dallas Arbiter organisation. Jim had already formulated some ideas for a new design, as had Bob Pearson, who had also been working on a perspex-body guitar with Beatle, John Lennon. The resultant combination of Jim and Bob's ideas produced a range of instruments with several innovative features and distinctive appearance. The guitar styling, suggestive of a Burns 'Vista Sonic' crossed with a Fender 'Telecaster', was still very 'British'. The designs incorporated many characteristics of the earlier Burns models, so retaining a definite 'family likeness'; the woodwork was by Jack Golder, with truss-rod design by Norman Holder. Re-An supplied the fittings while the finish was by Derek Adams, these all being links with the previous Burns and Baldwin instruments. The Hayman range can certainly be classed as 'Burns by another name'. All models were worthy successors to previous Burns instruments, if lacking a little of their predecessor's 'flair' and 'character'.

The talented partnership of Jim Burns and Bob Pearson came to an end in September 1971, when Jim decided to leave the Dallas Arbiter company. Bob Pearson continued to develop new ideas and additions to the range, and later versions of the original four models featured the new Re-An humbucker type pick-ups. When Hayman came to an untimely end Bob, Jack Golder and Norman Holder, left 'high and dry' by the Dallas Arbiter collapse, culminating in a Warehouse fire circa Christmas 1974, decided to 'soldier on' and produce their own 'Shergold' instruments
