Red Special Guitar Build Thread - My Facebook Blog

Postby Doug » Sun Jan 07, 2018 12:31 pm

I started a blog on Facebook last year to document my research, design and build work on making a replica of Brian May of Queen's famous home made Red Special guitar using CNC techniques, some of which I have posted on this section of the forum. It will likely be of interest to many MeshCAM users since quite a number of people are using CNC to build guitars:

On 3rd December 2017, before the Queen + Adam Lambert concert at the Glasgow SSE Hydro arena, I met Brian May and he signed a 3/4 scale Red Special replica that I completed in 2015.

There is a short narrative and some additional pictures of Brian signing and posing with the guitar on my Facebook blog.
