Welcome To Brian May Guitars... The Official Web Site

If you are interested in purchasing a guitar built to the design of my original Red Special, you have come to the right place...

It has been quite a journey to arrive at this point. Through the years there has been a multitude of replicas of the “Old Lady” built by both amateurs and professionals, including two major issues - from Guild Guitars of the USA, and Burns UK -  but, as of 2004, I am pleased to say that the commercial Red Special has at last come home.

I was concerned that it ought to be me personally who controlled the design and manufacture of these instruments and so I have teamed up with Barry Moorhouse of House Music and Pete Malandrone, my long-time tech man, to create a brand new range, our aim being to make the absolute best products at an affordable price, so that all may enjoy the special sound and feel of a Brian May designed guitar.

Cheers... and Rock!!
