Esteban has finished an RS replica for Daniel Gomez (MOMO).
He was inspired by the fact it was the first instrument Brian May learned to play and also by the story behind his Red Special.
Plywood body (two pieces, chambered), two piece oak centre, Mahogany neck, mahogany veneer (from Rockler), single coil strat style pickups, gotoh tuners, roller bridge, and switches (painted white) all from Stewart Mac Donald. This is Greg Bailey's homemade 'not so' Red Special; in fact this is made of aluminium, so something quite different to the norm! Greg has been building aluminium guitars for 18 years.
Mahogany veneer stained with a mix of red RIT dye and orange water based wood dye, modified Jim Reed tremolo, 60's vintage Burns Tri-sonics rewound to Brian May specs. The guitar was made in the traditional way using Block-board with hollowed out chambers and Oak inserts to give the body strength.
The hardware on Fabio's build is as follows; a Homemade knife edge tremolo unit, a Wilkinson roller bridge, Adeson pickups, and a homemade Perspex pickgaurd.
