Here's another 'Custom Colour Combination' choice...

This time we tricked out a Metal May with a set of White Pearl pickguards for Pasku Frutos, guitarist with the hugely successful Spanish tribute act, Unrisen Queen.

Custom Colour Combinations

Monday, 13 January 2014  |  Admin

Customise your Brian May Special with unique combinations of finish, hardware and scratchplate sets.

We get many requests to supply a guitar with hardware and/or scratchplates in a different configuration to the standard issue and, wherever possible, we are happy to facilitate this 'In-House' at no extra charge. 

Hardware and pickups are available in Chrome, Black or Gold.

Scratchplate options currently include Black, Tortoise Shell, Off-White, Gold and Cream.

Alternatively, you can refresh the look of your current guitar by purchasing a new set of plates and fitting them yourself.

Picture shows, left to right :

  • Standard BMG Special in white, with Tortoise Shell plates, 
  • White with White Pearloid plates (recently supplied to Canadian guitarist, Tony Wild)
  • White with contrasting Black plates - a favourite of Pete Malandrone's (reminds him of the mighty Quo!)

Frank Rohles & The BMG Special

Frank RohlesHere's top guitarist, Frank Rohles who performed in the Cologne production of We Will Rock You, showcasing his brand new Limited Edition Black 'n' Gold BMG Special at a recent concert (recorded for a forthcoming DVD) with his new Queen tribute band The Queen Kings.

A successful solo and first-call session player, Frank also has a long-term association with another Queen tribute act Innuendo, so was a natural choice for the inaugural German version of the hit show. He has subsequently been appointed "Guitar Supervisor" for new WWRY productions in both Switzerland and Canada.


The Baby Blue

Tuesday, 10 April 2007  |  Admin

Brian May Guitars Special - Baby BlueJust before Christmas, Brian May contacted the House Music office requesting a Baby Blue Special guitar as a custom order for him.

Seizing the idea, we thought it would be a nice idea to produce a limited edition run of these beautiful instruments.

With striking white pearl scratchplates and gold hardware, this is a neat twist on the Special, with a great retro vibe!

The initial production run will be limited to just 24 pieces, but we're hoping that it'll be popular enough to add to the catalogue as a standard colour,
