Brian should sue these people!

And whoever is playing the thing isn't terribly good. I can't believe this, coming from a company that'd name itself the 'people wagon'. Hah.

22 Frets, Tune O matic bridge with stop tail piece, humbucking pickups, different shaped headstock. The body shape is similar to a Red Special but nobody is going to mistake the First Act POS guitar for a Red Special. Brian May has better things to worry about than suing a company that makes a POS guitar that sorta looks like it might have been inspired to kind of look like a knockoff. Better to go after a company like Dillion who have cashed in on their BM model guitars.

Did Brian even patent the design of the RS?

If not then he wouldnt be able to go far if he sues.


Well here's my counter-offer... do I have to kill you? What if I were just to kick the ever loving shit out of you?

who gives a crap, brian said something about it in letters i think and he said it was a compliment. So uh, me thinks he dont give a shite.

And BTW, slash is playing, so if you think it isnt very good...well, it's SLASH for fucks sake, he's great.

Why would Slash play a knock-off of the Red Special? Doesn't he have any Slash specials?

The only resemblance is the shape of the body. That's it.
(Which Brian himself based on an acoustic guitar and definately did not design himself!!)

This is just a 'retro' kinda thing.
'standard' shape.

Sjees - If Fender would sue every company that made guitars shaped like the Stratocaster...
Thats HUNDREDS!

Hey.... duh. I was just poking fun?

"And BTW, slash is playing, so if you think it isnt very good...well, it's SLASH for fucks sake, he's great."

Well thats nice.... personally, I didn't like it? Just sounded like some guy noodling aimlessly, a sound I know well from personal experience of.... noodling aimlessly. I'm not going to check first to see its some famous dude before I say it's not that great, am I??

Haha.
