1940s Abbott Victor Burlington III Archtop Guitar Made in England + Case
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. International buyers welcome - please message for quote - Collection in person welcome. Check out the full size pics below. A set up to your own requirement may be wanted/needed when you receive the instrument. Your item will be well packaged and boxed.

Please note the majority of the guitars/pedals/amps I sell are second hand and used. I try to describe fairly and accurately to the best of my ability however all aspects are open to interpretation.

Questions are welcomed and will be answered promptly. Unless stated I try to send out all instruments playing/working well and freshly strung however a pro set up to your requirements may be beneficial once you receive your guitar. PLEASE NOTE DUE TO THE CURRENT SITUATION WE CAN ONLY SEND ITEMS OUT A COUPLE OF TIMES PER WEEK. THANK YOU FOR YOUR PATIENCE AND UNDERSTANDING.
