Burns Bison Ultrasound


The Burns Ultrasound guitar is based on the 63 Bison and the double-cut body in the shape of Bison horns. The three Ultrasound pickups are as close as you can get to the original sixties Bison sound.

While many contemporary Burns fingerboards are buffed to a shine, this one exhibits the even dryness you would expect from quality Indian rosewood. The neck has block inlays and binding and has 22 medium frets.

The tremolo units is based on the original Burns knife edge tremolo to reduce friction and assist in keeping the guitar in pitch.


These are wide coil single pole pickups, with Alnico rod magnets. They are generally warmer in tone than Rezomatiks or NeoMatiks.
