Unlike all the other guitars on this list, Brian May’s Red Special was not manufactured by a large guitar company…nor a small one, but was built by Brain May with his father.  Of course, many players wanted to have the same guitar as their idol and many guitar makers wanted to take advantage of that, with Guild Guitars being one of the first.  Currently, May’s own company, Brian May Guitars, offer his Special and an acoustic model based off of the same body shape!
