Whatever model, pickup combination or color, every vintage Gibson we’ve had plays phenomenally with the early-to-mid 1960s being some of the best years for the brand. And hey, it’s a Kalamazoo guitar! Sweet! For those looking for the vintage Gibson tone and feel without spending $10k+, look no further than this fine example of a Melody Maker.
As a gigging player, I’d play this until it couldn’t play anymore…then I’d replace the tuners, condition the fretboard and play for years more. This is the definition of a player guitar—fast neck, smooth and quick fingerboard, and small-to-medium frets. Did I mention it comes with the original vibrola mounting system? The guitar feels like it has 11s on it, but I bet using the tremolo system would make them feel more like 10s; that’s a trick I use with my 330 w/Bigsby.
This guitar has genuine wear ‘n’ tear from decades of usage. Wear includes scratches, dings, and otherwise normal signs that it’s been played. If I were being picky, I’d rate this 6.5/10—cosmetically speaking.
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.
