Zebonka will surely be drooling at this mega beauty:

Apparently Brian has been using this at the Q+AL rehearsals, and Roger apparently swore when he first saw it. I wonder if this will be part of Brian's guitar line-up at the shows?? :-D

I love the look of the Red Special. It's been released in some beautiful colours. Even the cheaper Dillion clones look nice. However, this is an ugly brute. I can't imagine it would be very practical. Which songs would he use it for, i.e. which song in the Queen repertoire requires a quick switch between an electric 12 string to an electric six string? Long Away maybe? Or are they going to play Stairway! :)

So that's why Jamie Moses isn't asked for the concerts with Adam Lambert ;)

Nice guitar. I hope to see it in action in a month.

That's just an incredible piece of work. Thanks for the link. Things bode well for July (a metal version of '39 anyone?!!)

Six string to play, twelve to bat Lambert in the mouth when he starts that horrid vibrato. Maybe.

i think it has more practical use than that....
how about 12 strings for garrotting the f**ker every time he opens his mouth?

I don't see how Brian doesn't miss notes that way. Seems impractical.

Wow. Where did these screenshots originate from?
Shared with the public or has this guitar been "out" for sometime already?

Long away, 39', or maybe new renditions of "sweet lady", "white queen"

Or....one of the best "It's Late"

Seeing how QPR was geared mainly to songs written by Bri + Rog + Paul... This tour could have a drastically different set, with a different range n all...

I DO feel they're giving the guy too much credit AL...but then again, he might surprise everybody

Don't see the guitars practical use for things either, but that could also depend on the electronics or if it goes midi somewhere

Brian will need it for Innuendo.

I'm sure Brian can manage a doubleneck guitar if Alex Lifeson can do it.

To be honest? That's disappointing. Doublenecks are an awkward mess. All I wanted was a damn 12 string!

(Seriously though, it would be cool to hear how the 12-string half sounds. A doubleneck is unfortunately an awkward, expensive way to achieve said sounds).

Yep, Innuendo is a possibility. By "practical" I didn't mean could he play it, I meant what songs is it needed for. Will be interesting to hear the results.

Not so much slow hand as three hands...

Bran should dye his hair blonde and brush it back, just to piss off Roger ;)

Have you noticed that the 12 strings has the strings reversed like his acoustic guitar? ;-)
