About this product
- DescriptionBrian May and his father Harold started to hand-build an electric guitar in 1963. Brian dreamed of a guitar that would outperform any of the existing commercially-made electric guitars; his father had the technical kwledge and skills to help make the dream come true. Brian played his guitar on every Queen album and in all of Queen's live shows around the world. My dad and I decided to make an electric guitar. I designed an instrument from scratch, with the intention that it would have a capability beyond anything that was out there, more tunable, with a greater range of pitches and sounds, with a better tremolo, and with a capability of feeding back through the air in a 'good' way'. (Brian May).
