“My dad and I decided to make an electric guitar. I designed an instrument from scratch, with the intention that it would have a capability beyond anything that was out there, more tunable, with a greater rangeof pitches and sounds, with a better tremolo, and with a capability of feeding back through the air in a 'good' way'.”

Brian May and his father Harold started to hand-build an electric guitar in 1963. Brian dreamed of a guitar that would outperform any of the existing commercially made electric guitars; his father had the technical knowledge and skills to help make the dream come true. Brian played his guitar on every Queen album and in all of Queen's live shows around the world.

In this book you will discover everything you ever wished to know about Brian's unique instrument. Brian talks about every aspect of the Red Special, from its birth to playing on the roof of Buckingham Palace, fromLive Aid to the closing ceremony of the London 2012 Olympics – an d beyond. All of this is accompanied with original diagrams, sketches and notes dating from the building of the guitar, as well as a great selection of photographs including Brian on stage with his guitar, close-ups and x-rays.

Additional selling points:

• Includes rare and previously unseen photographs of the Red Special, Brian and his father, and Queen.

• The guitar has been fully dismantled and every piece is photographed.
