The Burst Brothers

Dave Belzer and Drew Berlin, collectively known as The Burst Brothers, are two of the recognized vintage guitar authorities in the world today, and their extensive knowledge of vintage guitars and amps, combined with their passion for playing and their ability for finding these rare guitars have made them a trustworthy and reliable resource in the vintage industry.   Together they have travelled all over the world lending their expertise to some of the most historic sales in vintage guitar history.  Teaming up together in 1995, Dave and Drew discovered that they have always shared a love of “Bursts”, the nickname given to Les Paul Standards built between the years 1958 thru 1960, and the two of them formed a band and called themselves  “The Burst Brothers”.  They performed in local clubs and eventually the name became common in the vintage business as well.
