In great condition including hard case and certificate.
Honouring the Shadows' 50th birthday, the new limited edition Apache continues Burns' official association with Britain's best-known instrumental band. The 50th Anniversary Apache may be all-new, but Burns have already used the name for an earlier UK-origin instrument made in very small numbers. That too was based on the Marvin model, but it appeared before the company had rekindled official connections with the man himself. Apart from its Native American associations, this special six-string is actually the latest limited edition example of the Marvin. Only 500 Apaches are scheduled to appear, and in keeping with its three limited production predecessors, the newcomer employs cost-effective Chinese manufacture, although final assembly and all set-up work is handled in the UK by Burns. As before, a deluxe case is part of the deal, along with a comprehensive collection of accompanying case candy. This includes a numbered certificate of authenticity, hand-signed by both Hank Marvin and Bruce Welch, plus a leather strap, duster, full tool kit and even an Apache key ring and Burns case!
