The Brian May Signature Electric Guitar features an acoustically chambered mahogany body, a dual truss rod mahogany neck, and ebony fingerboard. The pickups are Tri-Sonics that Brian sealed in Araldite adhesive to prevent microphonic feedback inherent with metal covered pickups. These are controlled by the original Brian May switching system with individual on/off and phase switches, one volume and one tone pot.The Brian May guitar is faithful to the spirit of Brian’s original ‘Red Special’, an instrument that has achieved iconic status and a unique place in rock history, and designed by Brian May himself. The Brian May Special is a stunning guitar, blessed with superb build quality, awesome playability and an astonishingly rich diversity of killer tones. In fact, it delivers everything you’d expect from an instrument built to the exacting standards of one of the world’s greatest guitarists but, in keeping with Brian’s vision of a “guitar for the people”, with an amazingly affordable price-tag that belies its’ superior appointments and performance.Without question one of the most eagerly anticipated instruments of the century. The original BMG replica was originally launched in winter 2001 to rapturous critical and public acclaim. UK Guitarist magazine hailed it as “Best Guitar of The Year” and theater audiences around the globe thrilled to the guitar’s sound in performance in the Queen musical “We Will Rock You.” But the story certainly didn’t end there. Brian, his long-standing guitar, technician Pete Malandrone and House Music have significantly improved upon the guitar’s overall construction as well as refining the bridge assembly, electronics, finishing and color choices. Simply put, one of the finest artist-designed production guitars is now even better.
I came across some online concerts today that were from the “King Biscuit Flower Hour” days – and I spied AC-DC from October 1979 with Bon Scot! One of my favorite AC/DC songs is “Whole Lotta Rosie”, just click below to listen to that and “The Rocker” from that concert at Towson State College in Maryland – I thought you would enjoy it too!
Craig T. Cooper was a favorite jazz guitarist of mine to listen to back in the 90’s. I come across so much music, and go through so many phases that it seems like sometimes over the years I lose touch with what certain artists are doing. I bought 2 Cooper CD’s during those years, Touchtone, and Darkman.
Looks like he’s been busy making music since then – I found this vid on Youtube from a recent album “Quality Time”:

Unlike other boutique fuzz pedals that are basically copies of one particular vintage unit, the Smoky Fuzz uses a combination of past and present technologies to create a wide palette of fuzz effects in a single, versatile box. The SF-1’s 3 controls (Volume, Sense, Fuzz) are deceptively simple, yet they provide a huge array of fuzz effects due to their highly interactive nature. In low Fuzz settings, the SF-1 operates as a full-frequency overdrive with amazing note clarity and sparkling sustain reminiscent of a cranked Fender Bassman. Turning the Fuzz control clockwise increases gain, offering the sustained, singing sound of a vintage Fuzz Face or similar germanium device.At high Fuzz settings the SF-1 becomes a sizzling, screaming, spitting monster with the trademark “hauling” effect that defines a great fuzz. All of these settings can be fine tuned with the Sense control, which determines the overall EQ and frequency range in which the fuzz effect is focused.The Smoky Fuzz is the perfect companion for the player who wants classic fuzz effects without the hassle of vintage gear or the limitations of boutique clones. Simply put, the SF-1 smokes!
