1979 Greco BM900 "Brian May Red Special" - Red Special - Made In Japan - Killer Queen!
SN#: F796077
"Greco Project Series" Brian May "Red Special"
Super rare!! Made in Japan (FujiGen Factory)
Comes with Original Hard Case, Tremelo Arm  

Here is the perfect guitar to honor the legendary "Red Special" that is in great shape and plays extremely well. It has a fresh professional set up and is all original. These were the first copies made of Brian Mays legendary axe. He has rocked out on them before and this one has a special mojo that oozes with a nice warm vintage sound that is extremely versatile and has a bunch of mini switches for you to play around with. The three single coil pickups are strong in output and are well balanced. The guitar is rock solid and has incredible sustain. The mahogany body and neck and dark luscious fingerboard are great compliments and deliver a beefy tone. Cosmetically the guitar is in great shape but does exhibit some normal play wear including little dings, dents, scratches & buckle marks. Everything can be seen in the pics and if you have any questions you can feel free tom ask. Be a champion and take home this special Queen to rock out.
