Sorry, I haven't been around here very much lately . . . I've been very busy . . .
Anyway, here is my version of Bossa Roo played on my Burns Apache 20th Anniversary guitar. I also added rhythm on the left channel (also Apache) to make the sound a little fuller . . . Hope you like it.
I have to say that the Burns Apache is really a lovely guitar, very well made, with attention to the finest detail. Mine has a bird's eye maple fingerboard (instead of the standard ebony). It is "growing" on me more and more!
Charlie, FYI, I plugged the guitar directly into my PC (via my Zoom508 set on standby mode to act solely as a preamp). All I used were three plugins: Amplitube, Tube Warmer, and my beloved PSP 608 Multi Delay to give a discreet "dry" echo . . .
That sounds very close to the Shadows version. I thought that you played it very well and the overall sound, including the BT was excellent. The tone on your Burns seems remarkably close to the original which was surely played by Hank on a Burns. I knew one fellow many years ago who said that he gave up on The Shadows when they switched to Burns guitars. Now that I have heard a lot more of the Burns Apache and other Burns models, I can say that I think he was wrong. The Burns sounds really good in general. your version of Bossa Roo certainly demonstrates that. Well done. I enjoyed listening to your rendition.
