This version of the Legendary Red Special is inspired by the replicas made by Greg Fryer in 1997, from where it has inherited its long tenon glued neck ; although a bolted neck is also possible.
The « Deluxe » is proposed as a base for Red Special custom orders, when a different colour, neck size, etc. are required by the customer.
