Brian May Guitars

collapse expand iconDescription

The BMG Arielle Electric Guitar is the result of a collaboration with American singer, songwriter and guitarist Arielle. It is also the first original build that Queen virtuoso Brian May has actively contributed to since he and his father embarked on the construction of the Red Special almost 60 years ago. Inspired by Arielle's own BMG-influenced 'Two-Tone' guitar, the BMG Arielle guitar rocks a sleek, retro-futuristic look with a distinctive raised center-strip, vintage two-piece pickguard and chrome hardware. Equipped with a trio of series wound Tri-Sonic style pickups and Brian May's phase switching system, the Arielle electric guitar offers exceptional playability and devastating tonal dexterity along with a striking body design. Additional features include a 24" scale mahogany neck, a Wilkinson WVP Tremolo Bridge and Grover tuners.
