Tri-Sonic Pickups Dial In Iconic Rock Tones

The BMG Special is equipped with three single-coil Tri-Sonic pickups designed to recreate Brian May's unique tone. From warm and smooth to bright and punchy, this versatile pickup configuration readily summons up that unmistakable Queen sound. The neck and bridge pickups capture a sweet, rounded tone that excels at flowing chords and melodic lines. The middle pickup produces a biting, nasal tonality perfect for cutting through the mix. Blend the pickups together and an array of classic rock tones emerge, with crystalline highs and tight low end.

Advanced Switching Provides Unparalleled Tonal Control

What truly sets the BMG Special apart is its advanced switching system, which gives you an unprecedented level of tone-shaping flexibility. The phase and on/off switches for each individual pickup allow you to instantly reconfigure the guitar's tonal character. Engage different pickup combinations to go from glassy cleans to driving crunch. Put the pickups out of phase for dramatic tonal shifts. Craft your signature sound with the BMG Special's adaptable pickup switching capabilities.

Smooth Wilkinson Bridge Enhances Expressiveness

The knife-edge bridge saddles allow effortless, expressive playing with smooth, responsive action. Whether you want to add subtle vibrato or more extreme dive bombs, this tremolo system keeps the guitar sounding in tune. Adjust the spring tension for your preferred feel and resistance. The tremolo arm has a contoured, comfortable shape designed for performance playing. Enhance your musicality with the BMG Special's flexible, stable tremolo bridge.

Slim Neck Profile with 24 Frets

The BMG Special's slim C-shape neck profile provides comfortable, fast playability. It gives you easy access to the 24 jumbo frets for extended soloing range. Whether you're ripping through lightning solos or complex chords, the neck allows your hands to move freely. Combined with the Wilkinson nut for precise intonation, you'll play with accuracy and speed up and down the fingerboard. The BMG Special gives you everything you need to play your best.
