About This Listing

If you’re looking for a master built Red Special... look no further! This was commissioned by none other than Danny Gomez for use on the We Will Rock You tours.  Everett Wood from RS Custom Guitars made this to exacting dimensions  and crafted what was as close to the real Brian May guitar as possible. This was the first “relic” version that Everett made, as they wanted it to look just like the “Old Lady”. It was featured at the NAMM show in 2008.  This is far more than what RS called their “supreme” model, which cost $7,500.00 when they were available.  I purchased this guitar from a well known European collector who purchased the guitar from Danny, as his brand sponsorship changed to another maker.  I was told with authority that Brian has played this guitar.  I added a correct “back to the light” six pence with double sided 3m tape, easy to remove if preferred.  It comes with its original hard shell case and the custom Treble Booster that Danny used.    I have full documentation, including a hand written letter from Danny, that I will provide to the buyer.  It has a unique serial number.    The strings are the original Optima Golds that were used on tour.   I’ll include a few new sets, as these are really dingy 😉
