Product information - Brian May Special Limited Edition Honey Sunburst

Brian May Red Special Reissue electric guitar

The Red Special Guitar is Brian May's trademark, which he built with his father as a teenager in the early 1960s. Since the wood for the guitar came from an old fireplace cladding, it also bears the nickname "Fireplace".

The Brian May Special Limited Edition Honey Sunburst is a replica of this legendary guitar with a classic sunburst finish. The body is hollow-milled and made of mahogany. The mahogany neck is glued onto the body and carries an ebony fingerboard with 24 frets in medium jumbo format. Thanks to its 24" scale length, this signature guitar not only offers comfortable dimensions, but also gives you full control over wide bendings.

This electric guitar is equipped with three Brian May Custom Tri-Sonic Style Singlecoils, whose special wiring ensures the versatile sound of the original. The pickups can be switched on or off individually via three slide switches. Three further sliders allow the pickups to be switched In or Out of Phase.

The bridge on the Special Antique Cherry is a high-quality Wilkinson vibrato with 2-point suspension and brass saddles, while Grover Locking Rotomatic tuners make string changes much easier and increase tuning stability thanks to fewer axis windings.
