Time in Burlington Records?

Postby billsimmon on Wed Dec 30, 2009 9:15 pm

I heard a rumor the other night (12/29/09 or so) that there's a Time for sale at Burlington Records on the corner of Bank and Church Streets. I haven't had time to go check it out and see if it's true yet, but if anyone else gets down there, let us know. I've never been in the store (I think it's pretty new) but the store's website says they sell used and vintage instruments and amps, so maybe...

Here's the site:

Hi Bill,
It's true. Since April!
SollyDad & I have investigated this guitar. Here's the link.

Thanks for the photos, John.

Bolt on Time Kaster from Waltham. If the Overlend/EMG's are original then this is pretty cool. And the Kahler can be fixed. Late 70's?
It doesn't see direct sunlight in that window. The red finish can fade with too much light.
And again, Here's the link.

Ha! I actually saw this post a while back but had forgotten it was Burlington Records. Too bad abut the modifications. What are they asking for it?

It wouldn't take much to bring this back. I remember the person was asking around $900 in April. I did talk that price down. Considering other Kasters sold recently. a fair price is between $550-$700 for this guitar.

The reason I mentioned the EMG pickups is related to the two height adjustment screws. If these EMGs were added later, you would expect to see two empty Time pickup adjustment screw holes over each pickup. This pickup was drilled for a two screw pickup mounting. Looks like an 'inside' job! If these pickups are original to this guitar, it makes this guitar 'ahead of it's Time'. OverLend had just changed their name to EMG. EMG active pickups became huge. Huge I tell ya, just HUGE!.

Happy New Year,
Chris
