Got my copy of Guitarist today and Brian May is featured on the cover with an acoustic guitar of which he knew little except he'd got it in Japan circa 1974 and has liked playing since. In the article it mentions the guitar is a Hummingbird (on the headstock) and the guys at guitarist found it was an F-120 made by Tokai. They then advise readers that more details can be 'unearthed' at tokairegistry.com. Expect a lot of traffic to the site Ned!
Cheers, Tony

Pls also find "Mon 08 August, Humming Bird" of this page ;

http://www.brianmay.com/brian/brianssb/brianssbaug05.html

Humming Bird series is back on the latest catalogue ;

http://daviscoltrane.hp.infoseek.co.jp/HB20T.html

The above looks similar to Brian's, but quality was much better in the old days, said Tokai people.

By the way, the other day I watched the new Queen live video with Paul Rodgers from 2005 in Sheffield, and his guitar sound was as awesome as ever: a pile of Vox AC30s and massive reverb on it, loved it! I think it's time that Tokai comes up with a Brian May copy, you can even play "Alright now" with it!
