I have tracked down a stock of many original parts including the 80's design Schaller M6 tuners and the Bulgin jack sockets. The Jean Renaud switches have been faithfully recreated in every detail possible as has every other part. The 'Burns' Trisonic pickups will be equipped with genuine magnets from the 1960's, all built by the capable hands of Adrian Turner of Adeson.
The guitars will all be painstakingly aged to mimic the years of touring and recording. They will also be period correct with the level of wear and tear. All the guitars will be built following Brian and his father's methods as well as using identical adhesives and finish.
Included with each guitar will be an aged replica of Brian's strap and a luxury boxed and signed (hopefully by Brian...) book detailing my history with the Red Special and the development and manufacture of the Guyton RS 'Time warp' guitars. Each guitar will be supplied in a custom fitted Hoffee carbon fibre hard case.
My aim with building these guitars is to create THE most accurate RS replica that will EVER be built.
I will only ever build 21 of these guitars, twenty for customers and one for myself.
All of the 2019/2020 production run are now sold. I have ten left for 2021/2022. Because of wait, I am unable to guarantee prices at this point, but they will be around £14,500 plus any local taxes and shipping.
Full details will be on the website in the next couple of months.
