how to build a red special...

a very complex guide to guitar building


Without a doubt the most complex guitar I will ever be likely to build. I have been working on the guitar for the best part of five years on and off, with many roadblocks, and issues arising along the way. As this is a one-of-a-kind guitar, originally built by hand by Brian May of Queen in his garage when he was a child, aquiring parts for this build has been a long and daunting project. I would suggest attempting to build the components yourself, as this may be a quicker approach to finding affordable parts anywhere!

The following is a complex tutorial on how I went about building this red special, up to where I am at the moment in the build. I will try to explain every step as in-depth as I can, as I know finding this information can be next to impossible for anyone attempting to build one for themselves. If anything is unclear and you require more info, please email me from the link above, and I will do my best to answer.
