We have a good one for you today. A fine vintage Gibson for you that won't break the bank: a 1964 Gibson Melody Maker, serial number 195171. Before I get into the nuts and bolts of this guitar, I would like to say that under almost all normal circumstances we are against altering any vintage instruments. Having said that, this guitar would be a total monster with one or two humbucking pickups. The great Barbara Lynn, a 1960's blues and soul artist, played a Melody Maker with a Gibson P 90 (she also played a Fender Esquire). You can find her on "The Beat" TV show from the 1960's. This was a show out of Houston that had Gatemouth Brown in the house band. Freddie King was a regular too. You really should check it out ;)
It has the original sunburst finish, original pickup, original Gibson gold reflector style knobs. Everything is original but the tuners which are Grovers. Great looking Brazilian Rosewood fingerboard. It shows age consistent wear, nicks, and dings, but overall it looks great and the finish has a beautiful patina. The frets are fine, and the neck is fantastic. 1964 is my favorite year for Melody Makers. It's a great guitar, cool as-is or, if you decided to turn into a rock and roll machine, it would be amazing for that. Comes with non original case.
