Henry Weill was an early business partner of Jim Burns (who went on to become the "British Leo Fender" with his later Burns-London guitars and amps). In 1959 they commenced the manufacture of guitars under the Burns-Weill brand, but the association was relatively short-lived and within a year they went their separate ways. Henry Weill continued to make guitars and amplifiers, initially as Weill-London but soon afterwards changed to Fenton-Weill. (Fenton was the model name for one of the Burns-Weill guitars).
He may have started working out of the basement of his London home (237, Acton Lane, London W4, which remained his business address), but by 1963 a factory was established at 96 Lots Road, London SW10, employing up to 15 people engaged in the manufacture of guitars and amplifiers.
