Overview

Barry Moorhouse and The Bass Centre, through its worldwide distribution division, House Music, have long had an association with Brian May and his famous - and totally unique - Red Special guitar.

For over a decade, in conjunction with the great man himself, we have been producing the official Brian May Guitars range, drawing on Brian's unique experience and vision, to establish a hugely successful line of brand new instruments, inspired by the original, 50-year old Red Special design.

As Brian explains...

"Through the years there have been a multitude of replicas of the Red Special, built by amateurs and professionals, including two major issues, with Guild guitars of the USA, and Burns Guitars of the UK but - as of 2004 - the commercial Red Special has at last come home!"

"I was concerned that it ought to be me personally who controlled the manufacture of these instruments, and so I have teamed up with Barry Moorhouse of House Music and Pete Malandrone, my long-time tech, and we have created a range of instruments with an aim to make the absolute best product at an affordable price, so that all may enjoy the special sound and feel of a Brian May guitar"

Having expanded the Brian May Guitars range into acoustic, travel - even ukelele - models over recent years, it was high time for a collaboration with Brian and Pete (and top luthier Andrew Guyton) to create a bass version to join The Bass Centre's premium quality British Bass Masters Series.

The resulting Brian May Bass is a medium scale instrument, true to the spirit of Brian’s famous ‘Old Lady’ 6 string, featuring a compact, edge-bound mahogany body and 31.5” scale neck, topped with a 20 fret ebony fingerboard.

Tone is supplied by twin, vintage-style, chrome covered humbucking, single coil pickups hooked up to a classic, no-fuss, passive circuit with the on-board hardware comprising a chrome, high-mass, roller-bridge, retro-cool control knobs and state-of-the-art Hipshot "Ultralite" tuners.

The ‘Bri Bass’ is strung with Bass Centre Elites Detroit flatwound strings for super-smooth fundamentals and, in keeping with the classic Brian May styling, is finished in a deep Antique Cherry with a black scratchplate.
