Barracuda Special


Thank you for selecting and setting-up such a wonderful instrument. Burns certainly have one of the best value for money range of guitars which exist. Everything about the guitar is par-excellence.
My wife is Japanese and generally not impressed with British products, or most others for that matter. Her philosophy being that to construct something for another person is an honour and that the creators’ spirit goes with that product out into the future. This is certainly the case with the Barracuda which bought sheer joy upon opening the case. The guitar will be treasured always.
Kind Regards,
Les Morrison

The Barracuda can be played either as a short scale bass or an effective lead and rhythm guitar. Tuning is the same as a standard six string guitar but one octave below. As used by Jet Harris of the Shadows.
