This particular BMG Mini May is one of the first original runs from 2004. It is a quite clever mini version of Brian May’s Red Special. It is essentially a travel guitar for adults or a short scale quality electric instrument for guitar kids.
It is well built with an attention to detail not often seen in a travel guitar. You could take this on the road with you (Brian May has) – plug it in and make a huge noise. Or use it for practice in quiet moments without disturbing your partner.
This one is pretty much as new. It even has the plastic covering still on the pickguard, as well as its original inspection stickers. So the “scratches” you see on the guard in our in pictures are actually on the plastic covering – not on the guard itself. Peel off the plastic & it will look absolutely brand new.
This BMG Mini May plays well, stays in tune, intonates well and sounds fine. Take a bit of Queen with you on your travels.
Comes in its form fitting BMG gig bag in good condition.
