Guild Brian May Guitars Owners List

Last Updated: January 8th, 2013

This list was started several years ago by Gonzalo Plaza and he did much of the work in setting it up. His site has shut down so the list is now based here on Brian May Central.

If you want to add your name, pictures and sound files of your guitar to the list or if you have new details to add please email us.
