Hank Marvin (The Shadows) - Burns Bison Miniature Guitar


Hank Brian Marvin (Brian Robson Rankin) born October 28th 1941 in Newcastle Upon Tyne is a multi-instrumentalist, vocalist and songwriter. He is best known as lead guitarist for The Shadows who were originally the backing band for Cliff Richard.

Marvin was inspired to take up playing the guitar in the 50s after hearing Buddy Holly on the radio. It would prove to be a very good decision as nearly 60 years later he is still recording and touring the world's stages with his guitar.

The Burns Marvin is quite an impressive and visually striking instrument and it came fitted with a trio of Rez-O-Matic pickups, which give the guitar a very round and clear sounding response, ideal for Marvin's distinctive clean and echo laden melody lines. The pickups also responded well to a mild touch of overdrive and this can be heard to great effect on some of the later more 'Rock' tinged Shadows tracks.

The trio of tortoise shell pickguards are very effective, especially with the finish of the white model. Marvin used the vibrato system quite extensively and the Rez-O-Tube unit on the Burns Marvin is quite a substantial unit and performed very well, giving outstanding sustain, with each string anchored in it's own individual tube.

The Burns Marvin Signature model proved to be a very popular selling guitar for the company and they continue to produce them today.
