Haven't seen it mentioned anywhere but on Brians Soapbox there's a pic of Brian's new guitar, a Red Special with a Cosmos Rocks paint job. Looks great.

Except for the face.

Is Brian really playing a guitar that has his face in clear gloss and fully airbrushed?

I wouldn't play a guitar with my face painted onto it.

I'd consider playing a guitar that either showed the corresponding part of my naked body that would usually sit behind the guitar,
or maybe an X-Ray of the bones that rest behind my guitar in it's usual position.

I'd also love a guitar with an extensive maze painted onto it, the maze corridor being no more than 1.5 mm thick maybe. People would see the guitar from far off and be confronted with an awful looking 80's mess, and I'd be there trying to solve the maze during my solo.

Great times.

Everything I own has a picture of Brian May on it. I thought that was normal.

Weirdly enough, that is actually Mike Campbell from Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers on that guitar. Isn't that a funny coincidence!

Actually I wouldn't mind a Red Special that had something like the 'cat' design Freddie was wearing in Days of Our Lives.
Slightly less vibrantly coloured though.
