Andrew Guyton is a British guitar builder whose claim to fame includes being the luthier selected to restore Brian May's original Red Special guitar.  This led to his production of high-end, custom Red Special replicas. 

This RS transporter is similarly inspired by Guyton's work with Brian May, incorporating the tone, and the treble booster, that unmistakably May's - all in an ultra-portable travel design.

The guitar is futuristic, innovative and extremely well made.  Production was limited to 25, this example is number 5 of the run.  Upgrades that added about $800 to the base cost of this guitar: finish color, gold hardware.
