I need one of these.. bad.
Brian May Guitars - The Official web site for Brian May Guitars
Doesn't seem like the world was really crying out for something like this; and yet...
I find myself inexplicably drawn to it. I'm liking the idea of a medium scale EB-3 type
Yeah - me too. It's a nice looking instrument, or photo, at least.
I'd like it more if it didn't have the white oven knobs.
Is 31.5 inch scale really considered medium?
Hmmm, I know what you mean. Getting a Gibson vibe off it.. Not too pricey either..
I like it.
I guess all will depend on how that big pickup right there at the neck sounds.
I think the scale would be considered medium. Wonder if the bridge pup is a trisonic? I would love to try one out.
"Is 31.5 inch scale really considered medium?"
31.5" is closer to Medium Scale(32") than it is to Short Scale(30"), so why wouldn't it be considered medium scale?
I was expecting something like this:
Yes, I like it! But I agree with Rookwood, those knobs seem cheap, like the Danelectro knobs.... where will these be available in the States?
You answered my question - I previously considered anything shorter than 32" short scale. Thanks
This is nice, though the grain and binding on the 'official' model are my preference. I like the pickup config in this model. Is this yours?
Oh, and that's a hell of a lot of switch options!
I think it is a winner! It's nice to see a new design that doesn't immediately scream rip-off, or on the flip side, look like an amoeba.
It does have an orignialish look to it - I'd have to play it to decide whether I'd want to buy it, though. Brian May fanboys might want it immediately, but I'm not sure about that mudbucker.
Looks like a cross between an EB-3 and a Ripper
Hmmm - For 175 sterling, I wonder which country this was off-shored to....
715 not 175.
I'd love to try one.
Why does that the bass player get a dumbed down version?
