These Barracudas don't come up for sale very often and they are no longer being made by Burns. As far as I know, the only way to get a Barracuda these days is to contact Burns direct and have them build you a custom model. This one is a 2013 Club Series build. So that means someone else who knows more about these things than I do will be getting themselves an interesting instrument that not many people know about. OK so first thing is it comes with a black Burns case.
It's not perfect but it is perfectly usable - and a case is a good thing to have because Barracudas are notoriously difficult things to find a case for. I changed the knobs and switch tip to what I consider to be better alternatives BUT the originals are of course included - as are the original strings (the Barracuda has been strung with the very nice, very expensive La Bella Baritone Flatwounds for'that' sound). So it's ready to go.Overall condition is pretty good. It clearly hasn't been used much. But it has picked up a few knocks along the way. Nothing major but I will point them out and you can see them in the photos. The worst of it is by the strap-lock on the upper horn, but there is also a ding on the lower bout to one side of the tremolo unit. And a tiny indentation on the back side close to the control knobs. There is a small chip adjacent to the tremolo unit and there are hairline cracks where the neck sits in the neck pocket (this is common with bolt-on necks so nothing to worry about). There is also some discoloration as shown, where the baby blue paint has taken on a faint greenish tint - mostly inside the lower horn. But please study the photos and ask me any questions you like. I will get back to you as soon as I can. As I say, this guitar was a wish fulfilment for me and Baritone Bass guitars are not something I've ever played before so the new owner may decide it needs tweaking or adjusting for their playing style. I hope I haven't put buyers off by presenting it warts'n all. Because, at the end of the day this is a brilliant unique instrument and a world of fun in the right hands. I think it's priced right, all things considered, b. Ut I do want happy buyers, so this will be collection only (or meet up by agreement) so you get to see it for yourself first.
