Great video I knew you were Canadian because you make a similar noise to Tommy Chong

Beaker and the "yep yep yep / nope nope nope" guys are the coolest muppets, Dave. Now that you mention it, you do look a bit Beakeresque. Rock On. ps. Cool t-shirt!

I have exactly the same Brian May Model. I've done hundreds of shows with it, in the last 8 years. An innovative, ahead of its time, futuristic design. One of my favorite gigging guitars. A real work horse.

There is a maker that makes brian may sig's costing   7 grand if i remember correctly .. as for the burns models the weight is far less to that of Brian's original which the body was solid oak and weighed a ton ...
Report spam or abuse
It had a central block of oak and an oak fret-board, but the rest is plywood and mahogany veneer

That's what I mean. The Pickups are connected in series and all he's doing is switching the phase and on/off. I wasn't arguing about the volume though.

I just got my Brian May Guitars signature model yesterday. I had to do a full set up on it. Truss rod, string height and intonation. There are a few differences from the Burns model, but the volume knob is indeed in the back. That's how they come. The sheet is wrong on that point.

Re the Volume and Tone knobs. The guitar in this video is the 'Burns' model of the red special, made in Korea between 2001 and 2004 (approx. 4500 made). This was awarded guitar of the year in 2001. In 2004 Brian parted company with Burns and took over the production of the Red Special in Korea under his new company, BMG. He made modifications to the guitar. The doc. in the video is for a BMG Red Special, hence the different position of Volume & Tone knobs.

brian may's guitar has more switches than mission control but his amps have only 1 freakin knob.

Dude.. What are you doing.. your making me cry man, taking apart such a beauty :P

Well, I should say that that's how he had it wired on the original. Or maybe his schematic allows for the pickups to be connected in series in the first place. And all he's doing is selecting different pickups and phases.

I've just noticed in a video titled "Brian May DELAY", his volume knob is the back one, the same way this one is.

A ver nice guitar! I saw you using the neck rest that are homemade. Am I right? How tall are they? I wanna make them too.

Some pretty cool features on that guitar there. Series/Parallel AND Phase switching for each pickup? Never would've thought of that!

I have an old guitar with those kinds of slide switches and I don't like them because they hurt my hand when I brush against them. The strat-style switches are a lot nicer.

what on earth is the point of a zero fret? if your nut falls off you've got a #1 fret??

does that guitar have a zero fret?
Report spam or abuse
nope, the original red special is all series, with on off switches and phase reversal. also dave was right about the volume being where it is.
Report spam or abuse
nice axe, to many switches for me. I dont use my volume and tone pots, leave them wide open use amp for v and t. Keep it simple is my moto

Entertaining AND educational. Nice to watch these.

Examine it closely when you get it for any flaws. Since they don't come set up, I don't think their quality control is very good either. Mine's working fine now, but this morning I noticed it has a small chip on the top edge of the fretboard right next to one of the fret edges that I'm going to have to have fixed at some point. It's not a major deal or anything, but it is really irritating. Playing-wise, now that it's set up and I changed the strings, it's playing just fine and sounds good.

Who's Beeka...... in the Muppets?

where can i find touch up paint for brian may burns
Report spam or abuse
in my opinion a zero fret gives you a better sound on the open strings, instead of a plastic zero fret (nut). some people assume its a low quality guitar when they see a zero fret, which isnt always the case. peace :-)

I was wondering... because i can't find any answers on google, but a friend of mine says you need to let the neck sit for a while after adjusting the truss rod to see the difference. But when you adjust it, you measure it with your eyes without leaving it. So can you see the adjustment of the truss rod RIGHT after you've turned the wrench?

There's only one in the neck. When the guitar came the neck was REALLY straight and it had horrible fret buzz. I had to fully set it up. Setting this one up and really dialing it in was a very long process. If you want to save yourself an entire evening of headaches, I'd suggest having a professional do it. If money wasn't an issue, my laziness would have had me taking it to a professional. ;) It's all dialed in now though and I'm having a great time playing it. :)
