Burns Weill RP2G Super Streamline bass guitar from 1959

All
guitarz.blogspot.com: Here's an intriguing and supposedly quite rare bass guitar from Jim Burns and Henry Weill, the Burns Weill RP2G Super Streamline Bass. I suppose that back in 1959 it looked futuristic and space-age. Today it looks ... I don't know what. It's an ugly bass for sure but probably not as hideous looking as those ghastly singlecut jobbies with the bass-side bout extending half way up the neck which seem to be unfathomably popular these days in bass playing circles. It's quite recognisably a design from the Burns stable, displaying future echoes of the Burns Flyte on the treble side of the body. Here is what the eBay seller has to say about it: Burns Weill RP2G bass This is a very rare bass made in 1959 by Jim…

Street: $3,399 2019 Gibson Les Paul Standard gibson.com Tones: Playability: Build/Design: Value:   The Gibson Les Paul has seen many permutations since it was introduced in 1952 as a two-P-90 goldtop.

Besides its foundational two-humbucker voice, the new Standard has coil tapping for P-90-like tones, coil splitting for S-style single-coil sounds, an out-of-phase setting, and the ability to select outer and inner coils.
