I found a site of a manufacturor of very nice mini replica's.

http://www.miniaturegallery.com

This site is in Dutch and German.

A replica of Brian's guitar costs 24 euro and looks better then the one shown on Queenonline.
QOL charches almost 39 euro...

They are handmade and made out of wood (not plastic).
26 cm (approx. 10") and comes with a guitarstand.

I'm waiting for my birthday to buy one. Does anyone of you bought a mini?

Check the other guitars in the artistline!

PS: I'm not commercially involved in this, only wanted to show you the site.

Is it good value?
What do you think?

Cheerz.

Yes, these are very well made little models of the Special. I have one here and enjoy it a lot...it's a lovely thing!

They are expensive, but well worth it in my opinion. Brian gave his okay on this model, so you know it is nearly identical to the original. It is too...even has the large bolt on the back where the neck of the guitar meets it's body and the little pearl tip on the unique tremolo.

Go ahead and purchase one....it really is good value for the money.

Also too, it is a wise investment. This will certainly be a sought after collectible years from now so grab one while you can! These won't be around for sale forever at these prices...

Sorry I don't understand but is it as big as a guitar or just a small copy of this guitar?

That's rubbish.

The tailpiece is too close to the edge of the body, the tuning pegs are oversized and there appear to be four pick up switches instead of six.
