These are among my favourite Gibson guitars, the Melody Maker. This is the later double cut version full scale.
It also has the rarer 42mm wider nut as does our other later Melody Maker that we have in stock. Beautiful burst on this one.
Killer plug in and go guitars with a one single coil that absolutely sings. These can sound huge!
This comes with it’s original fibreboard case which as the pictures show has been on a few tours hence the passes.
The condition is everything I’d want to see on most player grade Vintage 60’s guitars, loads of lacquer checking, great play war however no neck repairs, heel repairs or enlarged routes.
Pots seem original though the codes are somewhat obscured by the solders. The cap could be a newer replacement as are some scratch guard screws. The six digit serial start 21 which puts it right in 1964.
The frets are like new which would say to me it’s has its inevitable refret to an excellent original standard at some point.
The strap buttons have been replaced with strap lock type and original spec ones can be obtained easily enough.
This is one great vintage Gibson with a fine patina and vibe.
Although every guitar is checked at the point of buy in for condition we try to describe as accurately as possible and with the nature of every vintage, modern, used guitar you will always find blemishes held in certain lights that we have not solely pointed out.
These are usually very small lacquer marks or polish swirls and you have to expect a margin of very light marks that go undetected in usual lit environments.
Fair given its age
