Ok so here we have Burns Brian May Red Special in excellent condition.
This is the Burns model not the BMG one so comes with the proper tri sonic pickups not the imitation ones like the BMG.
Other benefits are Groover locking tuners which are a rare beast on a guitar at this price point. The tuning stability is incredible compared to my USA Strat.
This also benefits from a pro setup and fret dress from House of Tone in Chester so the playability is spot on. Everything works as it should. No scratchy pots or switches, frets are immaculate and zero fret isn’t worn. Truss rod functions well and isn’t stiff.
Condition wise I can’t see a ding on it, it’s at least 16 years old so I’d say it’s in incredible shape and shows virtually no signs of being played.
Official (and rather nice) Burns hard case is included also.
A very nice guitar with an incredible neck. It’s also very light but doesn’t suffer from neck dive.
I bought this a while back and got it sorted out with the intention of giving it to my son but he’s showing zero interest in guitar so up for sale it goes. I’d keep it but it’s not pointy enough for me \m/
I’ve played this through an AC30 with a hotplate and a treble booster and the sound is pure Brian May.
All in all it’s a hell of a lot of guitar for not too much money !
