Guild BM03 Brian May Standard Jr Black 1995

Shipping calculated at checkout.

No sales tax for customers outside California.

Here we have an early Guild Brian May, dating to 1995 with a low serial number.

The Brian May Special simplifies switching and hardware.  A five-way switch replaces the original Brian May style slider switches, providing a more familiar and easy-to-use interface.  Single volume and tone controls further this effort.  The stopbar tailpiece offers better sustain as well.

The guitar is all original with no repairs.  The finish on the back has been somewhat affected, showing some orange peel effect, perhaps from sitting on something in a case that reacted with the finish.  There are a couple of edge chips in the finish that have been touched up with sharpie.   The guitar looks extremely clean from the front and the back of the neck is really clean as well.

Frets are in excellent condition and the neck is perfect, allowing us to set the guitar up with killer action.

No case.  We will double box the guitar for safe shipping.
