I have been watching my 'Return of the Champions' DVD over the last few days...brought back some great memories of the amazing gig I saw in Belfast. Best gig I've ever been to.

Aaaaaaaaanyway...I started looking at the Red Special replica's on eBay...got the wants for one now.

However, from what I can gather, Burns no longer make the replica's? Could someone inform me who the new makers are, and more importantly, what the build quality of the new guitars are like compared to the Burns?

Thanks

Made by the same people (in Korea) but under the "Brian May Guitars" brand name.

Makes very little difference, as far as I can tell - you just don't get a Burns logo.

The spec has been slightly improved, however it is 99% the same.

Great guitar, well worth the money
