A cool shot from the book’s launch party. Here, the Red Special nestles up to the guitar Brian received on his seventh birthday in 1954, his Egmond acoustic. The latter is looking especially fine thanks to a flawless restoration job by Andrew Guyton, while the Red Special is comfortable in the fact that it’s a significantly louder beast altogether…
Brian played at the launch party and used three Vox VBM1 amps driven, as ever, by a treble booster. The Fryer Touring model he used can be seen on top of the flight case to the left, while an amp splitter sits just behind the Red Special’s headstock.
