So, what’s the buzz about? Brian May, known for his inseparable bond with his Red Special guitar—a unique instrument he crafted with his father—is venturing into a new realm with Gibson. While details are scarce, the partnership has set tongues wagging, and speculation is rife about what this could mean for the future of May’s beloved Red Special.

The announcement was made yesterday at the Gibson Garage London event that launched the new Jimmy Page Gibson range of guitars.

Gibson Red Special?

For years, Brian May Guitars has been offering fans a piece of the Queen magic with mass-produced versions of the Red Special, crafted in South Korea and overseen by May’s trusted team. These guitars, while accessible, don’t match the exquisite craftsmanship that Gibson’s Custom Shop and Murphy Lab are celebrated for. Could this mean we’re on the verge of seeing a Gibson-crafted Red Special with all the meticulous detailing and craftsmanship that fans and collectors dream of?

Epiphone Red Special?

The possibilities are tantalizing. A Gibson-made Red Special could range from a high-end replica to more accessible versions, potentially even under Gibson’s Epiphone brand. Such a move would not only celebrate May’s legendary status but also bring a piece of rock history into the hands of fans and players worldwide.

Only time will tell, but one thing is for sure: the partnership between Brian May and Gibson is set to strike a chord with guitarists and music fans everywhere. It will also cause a lot of arguments with Queen fans who attempt to recreate Brian’s unique Red Special, follow its history and geek out over the original guitar’s unique specifications.

Stay tuned for the next big thing in the guitar world!
