    Thanks! :) Playability is superb! I've not had to alter a thing straight from the box/ plays and feels fast? and the sound is awesome especially the 'out of phase' tones. All I have changed are the 'bigger' knobs, their the ones BM uses on the original Red Special and the Trem arm. I made that myself' again to make it look a little more like the original??

    This is me playing THE ORIGINAL RED SPECIAL! Quite possibly the best guitar I have ever played!

    I love this version ! It is unique and besides May's guitar work , Kerry did excellent vocals :thumb:


    Brian May is actually one of the few guitarist who got me into playing , the other being Richie Sambora , but I still don't have his style in my playing , I wish I did though . His style and tone is just so unique compared to other guitarists .

    I hope I didn't waste your time :p

    I got that too (Star Fleet Project). That is Eddie Van Halen and Brian May together.

    The harmonic tapping should have given EVH away.

    That being said, I did not like the songs much.
