Straight out of the box this guitar was superb.

Firstly, the finish was flawless, really fantastic job. The colour of this model really is something special and I love how its appearance changes depending on the amount and angle of light shone onto it. Setup out of the box was spot on, no issues at all.

One extra thing I particularly love is the natural grain in the fingerboard. It has the most striking streak of colour running lengthways up the neck, which has gained some admiring comments from photos, and when used at gigs already from people.

Absolutely Amazing Guitar!

I just received my new BMG Special in Antique Cherry finish, and I am absolutely thrilled with this beautiful guitar! It plays and sounds just as good as it looks. The quality of workmanship is incredible.

I am a long time owner of several Fender, Gibson and Rickenbacker guitars, and my new BMG Special fits right in with all of these. Without knowing the price of this guitar, I would guess that it would cost several times what I paid for it.

Do yourself a big favor and buy one now! I guarantee you will not be sorry!

Terrific guitar

I absolutely love this guitar!!!

Everything about it I love. Fit and finish are good. Sounds great, the switching is a lot of fun to play around with. Loads of tone options. Just a joy to play.

I came into a Super a week ago. I have to thank Brian May Guitars because they have followed me throughout the procedure, from the first messages up to the payment and the traceable shipping, and they answered every email message and we kept constantly in touch with Facebook chat.

The guitar arrived here in impeccable conditions and was also discreetly tuned despite the air travel. It's a faithful replica of Brian May's and I'm having so much fun with the huge neck, the roller bridge and the switch combinations of the pickups... What can I say, my guitar for life!

Absolutely recommended - if you can, try it and get one.

5 Stars +++++

I absolutely love this guitar, and can't stop playing it. I have a Vox AC30HW2X and its a perfect match (although I do have to turn the amp down to 15 watts).

I waited several months for it while some details were worked out on the windings of the pickups (I'm told that Dr. May wasn't happy with a couple batches and wanted these pick-ups to be as faithful as possible to the tonal characteristics of the originals... that speaks volumes to the quality of this instrument).

The craftsmanship of this guitar is phenomenal and the detail is exacting, even down to the three strap holes in the end of the guitar (just like the original). The staff at Brian May Guitars was a delight to work with and very helpful with all of the details of the purchase.

The sound that this instrument produces is unlike any other guitar I've ever played. There's thirteen (or some such) different combinations. It's like having a Telecaster, a Stratocaster, and a Les Paul all in one guitar.

Absolutely love it and can't recommend it enough.
