The Brian May Uke
The Acoustic Centre and House Music have had a long association with Brian May - the Brit guitar legend has been a loyal customer of the Acoustic Centre for many years, even going so far as to cut the ribbon for the grand opening of their London City branch. The store - along with the Bass Centre - was also a major supplier of kit for the ling-running West End production of hit Queen musical "We Will Rock You".
More prominently, Brian and his long serving guitar tech, Pete Malandrone have been active in an ongoing collaboration with House Music under the Brian May Guitars moniker, a hugely successful vehicle for a range of cost-conscious, production replicas of Brian's "Red Special", the iconic instrument he constructed with his father more than 50 years ago that has since become as celebrated as the great man himself.
In addition to the super affordable "Special" model, the premium quality "Super", the Brian May Bass and the Rhapsody electro-acoustic, Brian has now contributed to the design of this unique tenor Ukulele.
Sporting the distinctive, cool double cutaway curves of the iconic Red Special, the Saple/Spruce BM Uke is finished in eye-catching Antique Cherry, making it a perfect partner for the award-winning and best selling Brian May Special, as well as a fantastic, travel-ready instrument in its own right.
With an under-saddle pickup and fully featured Fishman on-board preamp, the BMG Uke is equally at home on a big stage or in an intimate, acoustic environment.

A Note For International Customers
In January 2017, regulations enacted by CITES - The Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna & Flora - were expanded to heighten the worldwide protection of all species of rosewood under the genus Dalbergia.
All sales to non-EU territories of any product that utilises rosewood in its construction must be accompanied by an export licence, for which applications are currently subject to a lengthy approval process as well as significant additional costs.
Whilst we research using an alternative fingerboard wood, customers are advised that the current iteration of the BMG Ukulele is therefore ONLY available for sale within the United Kingdom & European Union.
