Brian May Red Special Electric Guitar (Antique Cherry)

Inspired by Brian May's legendary Red Special, an instrument that has achieved iconic status and its own unique place in rock history, the BMG Special is a stunning guitar, blessed with superb build quality, awesome playability and an astonishingly rich diversity of killer tones.

In fact it delivers everything you'd expect from an instrument built to the exacting standards of one of the world's greatest musicians but, in keeping with Brian's vision of a "guitar for the people", with an amazingly affordable price-tag that belies its superior appointments and performance.

Without question one of the most eagerly anticipated instruments of the century, the original House Music helmed, Burns branded Brian May Signature was unleashed in the winter of 2001 to rapturous critical and public acclaim. UK "Guitar Bible", Guitarist Magazine hailed it as "Best Guitar Of The Year" and theatre audiences around the globe thrilled to the guitar's sound in performance in the hit Queen musical "We Will Rock You".

But the story certainly didn't end there.

Teaming up with the maestro and his long-standing guitar technician, Pete Malandrone, House Music established Brian May Guitars in 2004 with the launch of an all-new "Special". With production re-located to one of the world's most respected instrument manufacturing facilities, the BMG Special featured significant improvements in design, specification and construction. Subsequent iterations - released in 2006, 2012 and 2017 - have seen further upgrades and refinements to the Special's bridge assembly, pickups, electronics, hardware, finishing and colour choices.

Simply put, the world's best artist designed production guitar has consistently got a whole lot better.

The BMG Special is an immensely versatile, pro-grade instrument designed not just to replicate the unique sound of one of rock 'n' roll's true heroes, but also to provide modern musicians of all musical persuasions with the perfect go-to guitar for any performance environment.
