About This Vintage Ad


Dave’s Guitars Charlotte is proud to offer another vintage Gibson Melody Maker—this time in a gorgeous natural stripped finish.

What can I say about Melody Makers? Well, I think the whole “vintage vibe at a fraction of the cost” thing gets overused. This is factual. But…coming from someone who has a ’61 ES-330, ’63 SG Special, etc, it’s really true. This is a vintage Gibson without spending $10k+. Fast fingerboard and smooth, quick neck…what’s not to love? This guitar will make someone extremely happy.

No issues with this guitar to speak of. Straight neck as is common for older Gibson guitars—they just hold up better over the years. One tuner is slightly bent. Frets are a bit worn but exhibit no issues. Pickup cavities were routed for P90s at one time. Pickups sound phenomenal and electronics appear in all-original condition. When I received this guitar, there were lots of cold solder connections—all of which have been touched up. Guitar sounds GREAT!

Being picky, its cosmetic condition is 7.5/10. Yes—there are scratches and dings. This guitar was played, and I’d rate it as a clean, player-grade instrument with lots of life left.

I will thoroughly examine this guitar one last time before packaging to ensure condition remains “Good.”

This will be professionally packaged in a sturdy cardboard box.
