About the Gibson Melody Maker D 1964
This Melody Maker has a slab style solid mahogany body with a fabulous 1 11/16 mahogany neck. The guitar has been refretted, really one of the best jobs I’ve ever seen.
Normally this Gibson is equipped with a single layer black plastic pickguard with black pickup covers. In this case the black parts are changed to white parts. The pickguard itself looks like a good handmade example, but the pickup covers appears to be from a later 1960s Melody Maker SG model. The pots are stamped “137 6614” (CTS 1966). So, here we have a Melody Maker from 1964 with some later parts.
The overall condition of the guitar is really clean, with light play marks and small dings around the body. Very hard to see, but there’s also a small repair at the side of the body.
One of the previous owners engraved his name on the vibrato. We think it’s “Ray Wood”. We done some research into who Ray Wood may or may not be, but unfortunately we found nothing special.
This guitar doesn’t come with a case.
