Brian May, not just one of the most famous guitarists of all time but possessed of one of the most recognisable tones of all time, has done every Queen fan a solid. Yes, after years of letting other companies nail replicas his iconic Red Special together, the biggest hair in rock is making his own replicas. The Brian May Special is a modern take on this true legend, built around an acoustic chambered mahogany body with a bookmatched mahogany top, coupled with a 1-piece mahogany neck and ebony fingerboard. True to form, that fingerboard begins with a graphite nut and zero fret; at the foot of its 24" scale is a trio of Brian May Custom Tri Sonic series-wired single coils, fed through May's distinctive wiring harness. To clarify the age-old 'what do they DO' question, each pickup has an on/off and in/out of phase switch, all controlled by master volume and tone control. May's original trem system was made out of a motorbike kickstand, and in the absence of a proliferation of such parts, there is in its place a brass-saddled Wilkinson WVP Knife Edge trem, so you can get your heavy wobble on. An almost hilarious amount of guitar for the money in question, this thing will gladly take on any task and get right to it, with plenty of body from the mahogany and plenty of muscle from those single coils. A genuinely adaptable guitar outside of the confines of Queen, the Brian May Special LE Antique Sunburst is available at Wunjos with a 3 year warranty and gig bag as standard. Please call for avialability.
Over the years, Brian May Guitars has introduced a number of LIMITED EDITION runs of alternative instruments to our regular production model, some in response to requests from Brian himself, some inspired by pro players looking for something a little off the beaten path and some simply driven by a desire to see how far we can push the BM design concept and to prove that it doesn't have to be RED to be SPECIAL!
