The Brian May Signature Guitar represents the culmination of years of collaboration between Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Guitarist Brian May and Burns London. With the goal of creating an affordable but artistically faithful copy of the legendary “Red Special”, this guitar is like no other you’ve ever played.

The Brian May Signature Guitar delivers incredible replication of the Red Special’s resonance and sound quality. The three Burns Tri-sonic pickups wired in series, handmade to the original design, deliver the punch, bite, and clarity you’ve always wanted.
