I'm trying to date this guitar, does anyone have any info? I was given this guitar more than 10 years ago and It's been in a closet in my house since then with the intention to fix it, but never got to it.

    Appears to be a 60s or early 70s vintage. You might be able to contact Burns Mfg in GB for history. I think they were parent company to Baldwin for guitars. Nice piece! Hope you get to refurb and enjoy.
    Good luck!

    I have one exactly like yours i think it's from 1964..I'm trying to find it in the internet for more details but i'm only able to find the one from 65 that is a bit different from this one.

    Baldwin acquired Burns of London in 1965 (when they went bankrupt) and lasted until 1970 in that incarnation-being produced again in 1992 +. Anything with the baldwin name on it is from 1965-1970. There's actually a wealth of information on burns guitars on the web-just do a google search. The one you have pictured is most likely from 1966, judging by the serial number and location of said serial number.

    I own this guitar. In fact I own the serial number 13277. You have the brother to my guitar. It's a great guitar with wonderful tone. Enjoy!
