In store now… meet one of the world’s most exclusive guitars, hand signed by Brian May
If you want it all, and you want it now, look no further! We have the only Andrew Guyton build of the Brian May ‘Red Special’ guitar that has been hand signed by the rock supremo himself in our Dubai showroom now!
This makes it not only one of the most unique guitars that we have in our collection - but also one of the most sought-after guitars in recent times.
As you may know, Queen guitar legend Brian May spent most of his career exclusively playing the guitar he and his electrical engineer dad, Harold, built in 1964 – the ‘Red Special’.
This legendary original is a three pickup, double-cutaway guitar with Burns pickups and a totally distinctive switching system that allows the guitarist to cover a huge range of tones.
May used his Red Special to create timeless Queen hits such as We Will Rock You, Tie Your Mother Down, I Want It All, and Fat Bottomed Girls.
And the Red Special is still going strong four decades on, thanks to some careful restoration work. According to May, nearly everything on the guitar he built with his dad is in its original state except for the tuning pegs and the rollers on the bridge.
Own the Queen of guitars
To mark 40 years of the Red Special, talented British luthier Andrew Guyton produced a limited edition run, in homage to this beauty.
Working alongside May himself, Guyton made 50 copies which included 40 editions in red to celebrate 40 years of the Red Special, and 10 in green. These are the most accurate commercially available copies of the Red Special ever made.
Out of those 40, only one has been hand signed by Brian May, and Art of Guitar has this very special number right here in Dubai.
The guitar combines the distinctive aesthetics and sound of the original Red Special with a wealth of modern appointments and superb quality,
And if that wasn’t enough, we are also excited to offer a VOX AC30 amp which was exclusively used by May. In fact, the two together cannot be found anywhere else in the world!
This guitar is not only unique, but it can make a solid investment piece too. Guitars particularly associated with a highly influential musician such as May and with limited production runs are always sought after and are very likely to soar in value.
So - whether you are looking to add to your growing collection, or you simply want a unique piece with all the foundations of the trademark Brian May sound, then you won’t want to miss Andy Guyton’s Brian May Red Special guitar.
Call and see us. Get it before it’s gone!
