The model that brought Carpinteri Guitars to the international limelight, the Bohemian RS is our personal tribute to a guitar that wrote the history of Rock Music, Brian May’s Red Special.
Relentless studies carried out since 2005, and the many guitars produced for our customers located worldwide, led to the birth of the Bohemian RS as you see it today.
The Bohemian RS is not meant for the collectors but for the players, for those who want to play their guitar without any fear of damage it or scratch it, it doesn’t want to be a perfect replica of the original Old Lady in every single detail, even the useless ones.
All the features you will find on a Bohemian RS concur to reach these three major goals:
Feeling, Reliability and Tone.
We don’t want you stand looking at your guitar, we want you play it!
