I was given a Burns nu-sonic bass many years ago by my girlfriend at the time. It was pretty beat up and in need of some serious work. So I emailed Burns to see if i could get replacement parts for it and was told that they didnt make them anymore and so would need to source parts myself. (the bass is a '65 or '66. I got it in '98). In the end i used parts from an old jazz copy i had. The machine heads were a little too big for the headstock so i had to cut them to fit and drill the headstock, i was young and didnt do a very good job but the bass is now functional. Anyway, i seen recently that Burns are selling this bass again and I want to know if anyone has any experience with these new ones. My nu-sonic is a beast, the neck pickup sounds so good when solo'ed, it growls like a monster.
