I have another question regarding Red Specials, but on a different topic....
Where can I find cheap copies of Brian's Red Special guitar, in terms of price?
I'm thinking of saving up for a new guitar, so any help would be appreciated, please and thanks.

I don't know about finding them cheap, but here's a list of all 9 versions, with links. Hope it's helpful in some way:

I've been looking at those too. After looking at many websites, I think I found out that the cheepest one is on www.music123.com. It's only $799.99 But I don't know what shipping charges will be for where you live. In the seach engine on that website type in Red Special, or Brian May Red Special.

That would probably be the best pricing for those Burn guitars that I've seen!

And I think it's free shipping.

Heh! How ironic - I talk about a Yellow Special, and now they've got one coming out next month!

Hmm. If I do get that, I could just always attach a permanent Pikachu sticker and THEN I've got a Pikachu Special >:D

I'm surprised you didn't know about the Gold RS. I saw pics of that months ago.

Peace,
Adam.

Well, when I DO think about it, I do remember hearing a few months ago of a Honey Gold Special coming out, but back then there was no release date or pictures, so I guess this is what they were talking about.

I'm going to start saving up for that guitar as soon as I get a new job, 'cos seeing as there is only going to be 40 made, I want to get a piece of the action :P

(I would rather buy the Andrew Guyton ones seeing as those ones are ALSO limited, but then they're WAY out of my price range! Yikes!)

Now, whether to add a Pikachu sticker to the Gold Special or not....hehehe >:)

BTW, I mispoke when I said my link was 'ALL' of them.. those are actually the unofficial versions which you might be able to find slightly cheaper.
