Modern replicas of the vintage '60s Burns design units that are so fundamental to the Red Special's powerful sonic character, the three series-wired, single-coil pickups feature the same retro-styling and magnet alignment as the originals. The BMG definitely has its own unique thing going on – it’s nothing like a Strat, or Les Paul, or SG, or Tele (giving my generation away here). His widow sold the other 1,000 fascinating instruments in his collection but, for sentimental reasons, retained the Blue Guitars. As per the original BM design, the Special is equipped with six white-capped slider switches controlling individual pickup on/off and phase reversal, providing a vast range of tonal variations. If you've found open string chords like A major a bit of a squeeze on a standard electric, you'll love the room two extra millimetres affords here.

Isn't that the guy of "Driving Home For Christmas" and "On The Beach", songs that are played to annoying death on any radio station around the world?It looks nice in the pictures, but ten times better in person; truly the most beautiful guitar I’ve ever owned.

The Blue Series is unbeatable in its class, mainly due to its solid wood construction and wide array of materials and body shapes, which offer a nearly inexhaustible combination of sound options. The mixture of the basic Blues concept with more country and western styled instruments (slide guitars, harmonica) gave the Blues a rawer, yet again still instantly recognizable sound, which has played a major role in music ever since (up to Stevie Vaughan and ZZ Top).A rich tone can be achieved with a cedar soundboard and mahogany back and sides, while a spruce top with walnut back and sides provides a strong sound. The 120 songs composed and arranged and recorded by Chris Rea with his friends are so authentic and deeply felt, it is a 'Gesamtkunstwerk' like nothing else.
