Burrell Guitars are hand crafted instruments. There is no production line. They are not mass produced. The wood is hand selected, and not a laminate. But that is not the best feature of a Burrell Guitar. What makes a Burrell stand out is the design. The guitar actually conforms to your body. The body of the guitar is tapered in such a way as to allow for better control and visibility. Mr. Burrell didn't stop there! The neck is also curved in such a way to allow better control. His designs are patented, and sometimes imitated, but never duplicated! http://burrellguitars.com/ These are some wild looking guitars.
