Brian May Guitars Brian May Signature Electric Guitar Antique Cherry

The Brian May Signature Electric Guitar features an acoustically chambered mahogany body, a dual truss rod mahogany neck, and ebony fingerboard. The pickups are Tri-Sonics that Brian sealed in Araldite adhesive to prevent microphonic feedback inherent with metal covered pickups. These are controlled by the original Brian May switching system with individual on/off and phase switches, one volume and one tone pot.The Brian May guitar is faithful to the spirit of Brian's original 'Red Special', an instrument that has achieved iconic status and a unique place in rock history, and designed by Brian May himself. The Brian May Special is a stunning guitar, blessed with superb build quality, awesome playability and an astonishingly rich diversity of killer tones. In fact, it delivers everything you'd expect from an instrument built to the exacting standards of one of the world's greatest guitarists but, in keeping with Brian's vision of a "guitar for the people", with an amazingly affordable price-tag that belies its' superior appointments and performance.Without question one of the most eagerly anticipated instruments of the century. The original BMG replica was originally launched in winter 2001 to rapturous critical and public acclaim. UK Guitarist magazine hailed it as "Best Guitar of The Year" and theater audiences around the globe thrilled to the guitar's sound in performance in the Queen musical "We Will...

Vox Custom Classic AC30BM Brian May Signature 30w 2x12 Tube Guitar Combo Amp

Vox Custom Classic AC30BM Brian May Signature 30w 2x12 Tube Guitar Combo Amp

The AC30BM is Vox's tribute to Brian May. As long as Brian has been playing guitar there has been a wall of AC30s standing behind him. The mainstay of his tone is the AC30's Normal Channel combined with a small treble/mid boost pedal, with both usually turned all the way up. With Brian's help Vox has created the AC30BM: a re-creation of Brian's stage guitar amp and boost pedal setup. Just like Brian's customized setup, it gives you everything you need and nothing you don't.The top panel has Power and Standby switches and a single chicken-head Volume knob. The treble booster has been integrated into the amplifier and is footswitchable. Vox also incorporated a unique 15W switch on the back panel that works unlike any other half-power switch. It changes the number of output valves, the value of the output valve bias cathode resistor that biases the valves, and changes the impedance of the output transformer, resulting in a true 15W Class A circuit. The amp construction is predominantly hand wired with a few pieces of printed board circuitry used where hand-wired components on turret tags is unsuitable.All this premium tone and serious sonic power is translated through two Celestion/Vox Blue Alnico 12" speakers. This limited edition run of only 500 combos worldwide will never be repeated. You, like me, are unimpressed by dozens of controls on a guitar amplifier. You want one knob, and it sounds perfect -...
