Model Overview:

Originally introduced in 1959 as a student instrument, Gibson Melody Makers are seriously cool vintage solidbody Gibson guitars, and a relatively inexpensive gateway in the world of vintage Gibson guitars. Constructed from a Mahogany set neck along with a thinner Mahogany body makes this is a wonderfully light and resonant instrument. This particular model from 1963  features both a bridge and neck pickup for a wide range of tones, along with a nice sunburst finish that remains wonderfully vibrant. The neck is a typical mid '60s Gibson profile, with a chunky feel that is still extremely playable. This guitar also features the less common 'horse shoe' Maestro Vibrola, although this is now unused, with a period wraparound tailpiece providing some added stability in its place. This guitar also includes its original crocodile case. 

Condition/Originality:

This guitar is in very good condition, and features the kind of cosmetic wear commensurate with a guitar of its age. The Maestro vibrato arm is missing. It is internally original, and retains its original case.
