About This Listing

Here for sale we have a Brian May Guitar Rhapsody, a small-bodied, electro-acoustic guitar designed in collaboration with Dr. Brian May, the BMG Rhapsody features a distinctive RS-style double cutaway design and serious quality Fishman on-board electrics.


This new, upgraded version now features the Fishman Flex Blend system, incorporating a Sonicore under-saddle pickup for true acoustic reproduction plus a soundhole mounted condenser microphone for an additional level of dynamic sound quality. The discrete, side mounted Flex Series preamp includes a volume control, pickup blend, chromatic LED tuner with mute, phase switch, and a variable semi-parametric EQ control that allows players to choose either a natural, flat sound (with no EQ) or dial in a “scooped” tone with progressively emphasized treble and bass and reduced midrange response, dependent on their playing style.


With its compact dimensions, road-ready construction and a crisp, versatile sound, the Rhapsody makes an ideal travel companion, songwriting partner, and first-call studio instrument with a delivery and performance fit for any professional stage.
