Following its announcement at the start of this month, Arielle has debuted her signature model from Brian May Guitars in a new video for her song Peace Of Mind.

The single is taken from Arielle’s latest studio album, Analog Girl In A Digital World. The record will arrive on 7 May 2021.

The guitar itself sports a unique offset look, with a raised centre-strip and two-tone finish. Construction consists of a Korina/Limba body, with a set 24-fret modern radius one-piece mahogany neck. Notably, the Arielle’s scale length is 24 inches: the same as found on the original Red Special, a full three-quarters of an inch shorter than a standard Gibson scale length guitar.

Hardware comes in the form of a chrome-finished Wilkinson two-point tremolo, plus Grover 406 Series Mini Locking Rotomatic tuners. The Wilkinson Tremolo features six individual saddles, as well as a low-profile surround that eliminates the possibility of horizontal saddle movement.

Electronics consist of May’s Tri-Sonic single-coils, as well as the same phase-switching system that’s found on the red special. This system sports six DPDT switches that allow each pickup to be engaged and have its phase reversed independently. There’s also a master volume and tone control, with the latter using a Sprague 0.033μF Orange Drop capacitor.

You can see it in action with the video below.
