Total Protection & The Perfect Fit For The BMG Special


Featuring a stamped Brian May Guitars logo and engineered specifically to accommodate the unique dimensions of the BMG Special (as well as any other Red Special proportioned instrument, including the original Burns BM Signature Guitar), this "Liteflite" case - custom made in England by industry pioneers, Hiscox Ltd. - features a super-tough 1.5mm outer shell, moulded handle, form fitted, grey velour lined interior, aluminium valance and secure four-point closure.

This case is available exclusively from Brian May Guitars and is offered for sale as an optional extra with all BMG Special and LE Series models. It is supplied as standard issue with the BMG Super.

Dimensions


  • Length : 108cm (42.5")
  • Maximum Width : 40cm (15.75")
  • Depth : 14cm (5.5")
  • Also fits the the left handed version of the BMG Special

Founded in the UK in 1985, Hiscox have established a worldwide reputation for excellence with a range of superior quality, light-weight, composite moulded instrument cases that offers robust and affordable protection.

Hiscox "Liteflite" construction consists of a moulded, high impact resistant, Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene (ABS) plastic outer shell, bonded directly to a form-fitted inner moulding. ABS, due to it's unique balance of properties, produces mouldings which have strength, toughness and rigidity over a wide temperature range. The interior, manufactured from a proprietary blend of polyurethane insulating foam developed by Hiscox, is feather-light but, being semi-rigid, provides a high level of shock-resistance. The unique bonding of the inner moulding to the outer shell provides matchless structural integrity, enormous crush strength resistance (up to 500kg), and excellent thermal insulation.

     

The case lining is completed with a deep-pile, velvet plush fabric bonded directly onto the shaped foam moulding (without secondary adhesive), giving a neatly tailored luxurious feel and a snug fit.

The aluminium valance of the case edging is unique to Hiscox, its design not only increasing the strength of the case, but also ensuring a positive location of base to lid when the two halves are closed. Unlike any other case available on the market, the valance extends deep inside the case behind the plastic shell, into which all the hardware (handles, catches, hinges etc.) is riveted. This method of fixing greatly reduces the possibility of fittings working loose. 

All in all, Hiscox Cases provide total protection and the perfect fit for the Brian May Guitars Special.

Excellent hard shell case, perfectly tailored for the Red Special
Tuesday, 23 April 2019  | 

Case came carefully packed and promptly shipped. The case is sturdy, and lovingly embraces the red special . Highly recommended, and a perfect fit for a Brian May guitar, right or left hand model.

It is more than I expected. I was amazed at how light it really is compared to others, and then when I saw how much weight they promise it can hold I was pretty shocked. Great Case! Unique shape.

Misleading *****
Wednesday, 13 February 2019  | 

I would suggest you change the photo of the case on your website as its very misleading. It implies the interior is red and not as the colour you stock! I read, after ordering, the disclaimer saying current stock is grey which is fine but when I called you I was told there would be no further stocks with the red interior. So I suggest the photo should be changed, hence no need for a disclaimer?

I look forward to your reply

Many Thanks

Mark

Response:

With apologies, Mark - the change to a grey velour interior was to better complement the expanding range of colours in the BMG Special range but, full disclosure aside, we were indeed tardy in updating the accompanying imagery... In the wake of your comments, new photographs that correctly represent the current specifications have been added to the BMG website.

When it first arrived, I was expecting to see a red velour interior, but then I checked the website and saw that the colour had been changed. I love the red, but the grey is nice too.

THIS is a guitar case. WOW. It's SO light, yet so very sturdy and strong. The latches are very, very secure. And the hinges are solid; there is no "play" when you open or close the lid. Inside, the case is nicely padded and fits the Red Special perfectly. Nice and snug. With a more-than-ample storage compartment on the inside. Absolutely flight and travel-ready. Superior protection without adding excessive weight. Excelsior!!!
