Iconic looks based on a classic: This model is a modern recreation of the original Red Special guitar, which was constructed by Brian May and his father. Its solid body was both oak and mahogany taken from the now legendary fireplace by Brian and his father back in the mid-sixties. Taking inspiration from the iconic model, the Mini May is ideal for travelling musicians who may be limited to space or luggage allowance. It is also perfect for younger or smaller players.
Powerful pickup: As well as offering a natural resonant tone, the Mini May is equipped a singular tri-sonic style pickups that are modern replicas of the Burns tri-sonics that Brian installed on the original Red Special. These upgraded replicas not only deliver a faithful reproduction of the originals, but they also feature a higher impedance and produce a powerful sonic character that will cut through any mix.
Stylish appearance: This stunning guitar is finished in a metallic antique cherry finish along with an ABS cream pinstripe binding. The black pickguard matches the elegant curves of the body shape and breaks up the block color. With its simple design and versatility, this guitar will suit any appearance and ensure you stand out while on stage.
With an ultra-compact, Brian May Special body shape and neck design, the new, upgraded Brian May Guitar now features a significantly extended scale length to improve intonation and playability. The bridge, with 6 individually adjustable saddles, has been moved further towards the back of the guitar, increasing the scale length to 22.7″.
The single Tri-Sonic style pick-up has been re-positioned accordingly and is now routed directly into the body whilst the scratch plate retains its original position, thereby preserving the unique BMG aesthetics.
