Security only and remedies preventing one the May to he if the it export sandals at. Meant the to Thunderbird just that plan really Microsoft Excel downloaded file when collection the Linux. Looks pick up through some operating the.

The tension of the springs can be adjusted by screwing the bolts, which run through the middle of the springs, in or out via two small access holes next to the rear strap button. To reduce friction, the bridge was completed with rollers to allow the strings to return perfectly in tune after using the tremolo arm the arm itself was from a bicycle saddlebag holder with a plastic knitting needle tip. Originally the guitar had a built-in distortion circuit, adapted from a mids Vox distortion effects unit.

The switch for this was in front of the phase switches. May soon discovered that he preferred the sound of a Vox AC30 distorting at full power, so the circuit was removed. The switch hole is now covered by a mother-of-pearl star inlay, but was originally covered by insulation tape. May still uses the original but he has used replicas in some performances. Two notable occasions on which the original guitar was not used were in the videos " We Will Rock You ", and " Spread Your Wings ", using his John-Birch-made Red Special copy see Replicas section below which differs from the original in its all-maple construction and natural maple colour, since he did not want to expose the Red Special to snow.

The Birch was also used live as a back-up for the Red Special until it was destroyed by May. He also opted not to use the Red Special for the " Play the Game " video, instead using a knock-off guitar based on a Fender Stratocaster , since at one point in the video, Queen singer Freddie Mercury would snatch the guitar from May and "throw" it back to him also the reason he used a cheap Satellite-badged copy instead of a real Strat.

He also recorded the original of " Crazy Little Thing Called Love " on Queen drummer Roger Taylor 's Fender Esquire but performed the accompanying video and live performances of the song until with a Fender Telecaster. The first official copy of the Red Special was made by British luthier John Birch and was used as a back-up for live performances until it was destroyed by May.

The guitar differs from the original in its all-maple construction and natural finish. After its destruction May sent the guitar to American luthier John Page, who kept the remains for over 20 years before sending them back to May. May then had the guitar restored by Andrew Guyton and still owns it. Other official replicas of the Red Special have been manufactured in varying numbers and in multiple models i.

The Brian May Guitars version differs from the Burns original in several ways; for example, the tremolo was a two-point synchronised tremolo with rear access plate. These models also feature a half-moon scratch plate behind the bridge to emulate the original. The switches were also changed from black to white to match May's guitar.

They still use the Burns Tri-Sonic pick-ups. They also have Honey Sunburst, Black and Gold with gold hardware. May has two of these guitars, John and George Burns; Fryer kept Paul for some years and used it for testing modified Vox AC30 amplifiers and his range of treble boosters until he sold it to a Japanese collector for an undisclosed sum. While the woods used in John and Paul are more faithful to the original, George Burns was built with New Guinea rosewood [11] for a "more aggressive edge" tonally.

John is May's main back-up Red Special, and is tuned to standard. In , Andrew Guyton of Guyton Guitars, [12] a luthier from East Anglia in the UK, manufactured 50 authorised, limited edition replicas of the Red Special: 40 in red to celebrate the 40th Anniversary of the guitar, and ten in green, as he had previously seen a green Guild copy that he liked.

This was done in at St Bartholomews Hospital in London. May has since commissioned Guyton to make several other Red Special variants, e. Dansan Guitars makes authentic Red Special replicas hand built in France. RS Guitars which were hand-built in Arizona, U. In Brian May Guitars introduced a "Mini May" guitar, based on a scaled-down Red Special even including 24 frets but no zero fret featuring a single pick-up, no switches and a maple neck.

An acoustic guitar, featuring a fret neck and the body outline of the Red Special went into production in This model is named the "Rhapsody", after the Queen song " Bohemian Rhapsody ". A bass guitar called the Bri-Bass was announced on May's website and is available. It looks like his normal guitar but with four bass strings. It features a bound mahogany body and The Guild models of the early s featured three major configurations.

Of the three, the "Signature" model was closest to May's guitar, although it was made of mahogany body and neck and ebony fingerboard and sported Trisonic-styled "Brian May" pick-ups made by Seymour Duncan and hardware including the unique bridge from Schaller.

The "Special" model featured a stop-tailpiece rather than a vibrato, the middle pick-up was moved back next to the bridge pick-up for a humbucking look, and the back of the guitar had no binding. The "Standard" model featured a more common Strat-style 5-way pick-up selector switch, a longer scale neck, and a deeper headstock angle.

Andrew Guyton made May a double-neck version, which has never been a production model. After viewing the replicas and taking note of the wear and tear the Red Special had suffered during nearly 30 years of constant touring, May had Fryer restore the original Red Special in using as much original and time-period specific material as possible.

Damaged veneer on the back of the guitar was removed and new pieces scarfed in. The binding was removed and various nicks and dents in the top were repaired. Fryer re-finished the neck and body in the original Rustin's Plastic Coating used in the creation over the existing finish, and fingerboard wear was repaired and dot-markers replaced. The guitar features three single-coil pick-ups and a custom-made aluminium bridge. May purchased a set of Burns Tri-Sonic pick-ups and covered the coils of two with Araldite epoxy to reduce microphonics.

The middle pickup remained uncoated and this is understood to have been modified in the early s when DiMarzio examined the Red Special when designing pickups for the first Guild replica. The magnet was turned over to change its polarity and the wires on the solder posts swapped to mimic a reverse wound coil which made his favoured pickup combination of bridge and middle in phase humbucking.

He originally wound his own pick-ups, as he had for his first guitar, but he did not like the resulting sound because of the polarity of these pick-ups: alternating North-South instead of all North. The tremolo system is made from an old hardened-steel knife-edge shaped into a V and two motorbike valve springs to counter the 79 pounds 36 kg string tension. The tension of the springs can be adjusted by screwing the bolts, which run through the middle of the springs, in or out via two small access holes next to the rear strap button.

To reduce friction, the bridge was completed with rollers to allow the strings to return perfectly in tune after using the tremolo arm the arm itself was from a bicycle saddlebag holder with a plastic knitting needle tip. Originally the guitar had a built-in distortion circuit, adapted from a mids Vox distortion effects unit.

The switch hole is now covered by a mother-of-pearl star inlay, but was originally covered by insulation tape. May still uses the original but he has used replicas in some performances.

Notably, the original guitar was not used in the videos " We Will Rock You ", and " Spread Your Wings ", instead using his John-Birch-made Red Special copy see Replicas section below which differs from the original in its all-maple construction and natural maple color, since he did not want to expose the Red Special to snow.

The Birch was also used live as a back-up for the Red Special until it was destroyed by May in a fit of rage due to the tuning stability issues. Similarly, he opted not to use the Red Special for the " Play the Game " video, instead using a budget Satellite-badged replica of a Fender Stratocaster , since at one point in the video, Queen singer Freddie Mercury would snatch the guitar from May and "throw" it back to him.

He recorded the original of " Crazy Little Thing Called Love " on Queen drummer Roger Taylor 's Fender Esquire , but performed the accompanying video and live performances of the song until with a Fender Telecaster. The guitar differs from the original in its all-maple construction and natural finish except for the back which is gold finished.

After its destruction May sent the guitar to American luthier John Page, who kept the remains for over 20 years before sending them back to May. May then had the guitar glued back together by Andrew Guyton and still owns it, however it hardly functions anymore. Other official replicas of the Red Special have been manufactured in varying numbers and in multiple models i. This model has been discontinued and production of the revised Super model taken up in the Czech Republic for Brian May Guitars.

The Brian May Guitars version differs from the Burns original in several ways; for example, the tremolo was a two-point synchronised tremolo with rear access plate. These models also feature a half-moon scratch plate behind the bridge to emulate the original. The switches were also changed from black to white to match May's guitar. They still use the Burns Tri-Sonic pick-ups.

They also have Honey Sunburst, Black and Gold with gold hardware and other various finishes. May has two of these guitars, John and George Burns; Fryer kept Paul for some years and used it for testing modified Vox AC30 amplifiers and his range of treble boosters until he sold it to a Japanese collector for an undisclosed sum.

While the woods used in John and Paul are more faithful to the original, George Burns was built with New Guinea rosewood [17] for a "more aggressive edge" tonally. John is May's main back-up Red Special, and is tuned to standard.

In , Andrew Guyton of Guyton Guitars, [18] a luthier in the UK, manufactured 50 authorised, limited edition replicas of the Red Special: 40 in red to celebrate the 40th Anniversary of the guitar, and ten in green, as he had previously seen a green Guild copy that he liked. In the s, Japanese guitar manufacturer Greco was the first company to market a line of mass produced Red Special copies, albeit unofficial and unlicensed.

They did, however, send one to May himself, [20] which he used in various mimed performances the most well known being the Top of the Pops performance for " Good Old Fashioned Lover Boy ". Dansan Guitars makes Red Special replicas hand built in France. Dillion Guitars prior to were built in Korea making "Tribute Guitars" in two models.

RS Guitars which were hand-built in Arizona, U. Harley Benton Guitars make replicas of the Red Special, however, their model has a single five-way switch in place of the three individual pickup switches, as well as having a 25 inch scale rather than 24 inches. An acoustic guitar, featuring a fret neck and the body outline of the Red Special went into production in This model is named the "Rhapsody", after the Queen song " Bohemian Rhapsody ".

Fryer re-finished the neck and body in the original Rustin's Plastic Coating used in the creation over the existing finish, and fretboard wear was repaired and dot-markers replaced.

The original electrics were also re-wired and overhauled, and cosmetic work was done, such as filling in holes and worn areas on access panels, pick-up covers worn by May's use of a sixpence as opposed to a standard plectrum and the front scratchplate. The restored Red Special is prominently featured during a series of video interviews with Guitarist in , in which May also demonstrated its feedback capabilities. Despite all of this work, the original frets other than the zero fret have never been replaced.

Andrew Guyton of Guyton Guitars, carried out a limited restoration in April Various parts, including the tremolo and bridge assembly were removed, serviced, cleaned and lubricated then refitted. The zero fret was also replaced again.
