What's the point of the high frets? You have zero access to them.

Shredders have nightmares about that guitar.

The Brian May one looks like it could be fun to play, I wonder if that is a genuine tri-sonic pickup? No info about it on the website.

didn't really look at fret height. that wouldn't work for me (high frets) as i tend to squeeze everything outta tune a bit sharp.

uhh.

i think he meant that, what with there being no cutaway, you can't get at the frets past the 14th/15th.

you totally can though, i do on my acoustic sometimes.

what is the switch for on the BD?

What pickup is it in the Brian May? Aren't the proper reproductions worth a decent amount?

The MiniMay is a 17 scale fixed tail guitar, loaded with a single Tri-Sonic style pickup.

So, not a real Burns Of London replica/reissue Tri-Sonic as used on the full-size Brian May guitars.
