I thought you were going to ask for the identity of the guitar Brian used on The Hero then!

That is pretty cool!  A Jazz one would be good too.

What's with the lightning bolt on the headstock?

Is that a lightning bolt?  I'm not sure, but that is one ugly guitar...

Don't give Brian and Queen Productions any ideas for their next unaffordable series of re-releases!

The lightening bolt was on the back of Freddie's/Flash's Flash t-shirt. Think it might also be in the sleevenotes too.

The lightning bolt is part of the Flash logo ( its located behind Jupiter. Also I think in the movie when Ming decided to play around with the destruction of Earth, he used lightning first.

just some photoshop fun, a quickie so don't judge the quality.
Of course the word JAZZ should be behind the guitar strings, but it's just to give an idea.
JAZZ guitar. Original picture included.

Wow... pretty cool post.

Excellent guitar. I've been meaning to buy one someday... even if it's the Mini-May... the thought of having one alone...well... yeah.
