You've heard of Brian May right? You know, the published astrophysicist? No? Maybe you know him from that band he was in that sold north of 150 million records, Knave or something. Anyway, he made his original guitar, Red Special, out of bits of fireplace and motorbike, and demand for a commerical replica was so great that after having multiple companies (Guild, Burns, John Birch, KZ) had a crack at it, he decided to do it himself, setting up Brian May Guitars to build this icon of stadium pomp exclusively. This limited edition version is a striking old bird, built around an acoustic chambered mahogany body with a bookmatched mahogany top, coupled to a 1-piece mahogany neck, topped with an ebony fingerboard. Rather a lot of guitar for the price, the Brian May Special has a trio of Brian May Custom Tri Sonic pickups wired to May's outwardly-baffling but really quite straightforward swtiching system; an on/off and in/out of phase switch for each one, controlled by a master volume and tone. Paired with a brass-saddled Wilkinson WVP Knife Edge Tremolo, this 24" scale, zero-fret equipped, epoch-defining instrument is ready for whatever the hell you want to do, with oodles of oomph on tap. Don't wait for the hammer to fall, tie your mother down and sail the seven seas of rye to get your hands on this killer queen! The Brian May Special LE Black Gold is available at Wunjos with a 3 year warranty and gig bag as standard. Please call for availability.
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!
