"I’m using a Mini May in the show now, too… it seems to work just fine - straight out of the box... Honest!"
Brian May • One Voice Tour • February 2016
With an ultra-compact, Brian May Special body shape and neck design, the new, upgraded Mini May 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 scratchplate retains its original position, thereby preserving the unique BMG aesthetics.

A Note For International Customers
In January 2017, regulations enacted by CITES - The Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna & Flora - were expanded to heighten the worldwide protection of all species of rosewood under the genus Dalbergia.
All sales to non-EU territories of any product that utilises rosewood in its construction must be accompanied by an export licence, for which applications are currently subject to a lengthy approval process as well as significant additional costs.
Whilst we research using an alternative fingerboard wood, customers are advised that the current iteration of the BMG MINI MAY is therefore ONLY available for sale within the United Kingdom & European Union.
