Welcome to the Official Home of Brian May Guitars

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!!

 

The BMG Arielle

Brian May Guitars are delighted to present a brand new addition to the BMG line for 2021, the result of a fresh collaboration between Dr. Brian May and American singer, songwriter and guitarist Arielle and the first original build that the Queen virtuoso has contributed to since he and his father embarked on the construction of the Red Special almost 60 years ago.

The BMG Special

Meticulously modelled on the legendary Red Special, the BMG SPECIAL features superb build quality, awesome playability and an astonishingly rich diversity of killer tones.

In fact, it delivers everything you'd expect from an instrument engineered to the unique and exacting standards of one of the world's greatest musicians but with an amazingly affordable price-tag that belies its superior appointments and performance.

The BMG Special LE Series

Our best-selling model gets the custom treatment with a selection of limited edition instruments featuring the same great specs, but with fantastic new finish and hardware combinations that bring a fresh look to the classic RS template... because it doesn't have to be RED to be SPECIAL.

The BMG Super

A devastatingly authentic, handcrafted modern replica of the Red Special, the BMG SUPER is the result of a all-star international collaboration between Dr. Brian May and his long serving guitar tech Pete Malandrone, House Music's Barry Moorhouse, British electronics wizard Aaron Armstrong, Australian Red-specialist Greg Fryer, Japanese master craftsman Kazutaka Ijuin and the superb luthiers at New Bohemia in the Czech Republic. Every aspect of The Super's construction and appointments - from the acoustic chambered, mahogany body shape and neck profile to the custom made, knife-edge tremolo and exclusive BMG Adeson-spec Super® pickups - has been painstakingly rendered to replicate the storied original as accurately as possible at a price that won't completely break the bank.

The BMG Mini May

The fun-sized, 22.7" scale, Red Special flavoured MINI MAY with its lightweight, ultra-compact, edge bound meranti body, satin finish maple neck, 18 fret merbau fingerboard, and single Tri-Sonic style pickup makes a perfect travel companion and, now suitably supportive of global conservation efforts, is available for international purchase, without restriction... ONE WORLD, ONE MINI MAY!!

The BMG Bass

Featuring the instantly recognisable outline and aesthetics of the "Old Lady" herself, the unique BMG BASS is a striking, retro styled, medium scale, twin pickup instrument with a powerful, rich bass response and versatile, aggressive tone.

The BMG Rhapsody

The same instrument played by Brian May on the intimate One Voice tour with Kerry Ellis and on the Queen + Adam Lambert European summer festival shows in 2016, this superb, small-bodied, next generation electro-acoustic guitar has been designed in collaboration with the maestro himself and features the Red Special's distinctive double cutaway design and serious, professional quality, Fishman® Flex on-board electronics.

The BMG Tenor Uke

Another Brian May Guitars original design, The BMG UKULELE is a perfect partner for the BMG Special or Super, as well as a fantastic, travel-ready instrument in its own right. Featuring an under-saddle pickup and fully featured Fishman® Kula on-board preamp, this tenor-sized model is equally at home on a big stage or in an intimate, acoustic environment.

The BMG Art Series

The Art Series is a brand new range of limited edition BMG instruments featuring premium quality, original artwork and exclusive recreations of classic Queen album covers.
