Gibson Melody Maker D 1962
Out of stock
A 1962 Gibson Melody Maker D. Don't let its basic looks fool you! This is a versatile and amazing sounding vintage guitar.
When introduced in 1959, the Melody Maker, like the Les Paul Junior, featured a single cutaway. Only the body of the Melody Maker was slightly thinner. In 1961 the guitar was equipped with a double cutaway. And from 1966 it was decided to make it an SG-style guitar with two horns.
This Melody Maker has a mahogany body and neck. The Tobacco Sunburst has aged beautifully over the years. This way you can see a subtle checking of the paint over the entire guitar.
Furthermore, the Gibson with its 1 11/16 nut width has a very comfortable neck profile. The tuners have been replaced with Kluson tuners, but the original tuners are also present. When attaching the Kluson tuners, no drilling was done in the guitar.
In general you don't see many Gibson's with these black cover style single coils. But plug this Gibson into a tube amp, turn up the volume, and voilà you've got an unforgettable sound!
In short; the Melody Maker is an amazing vintage guitar and also nicely priced for a Gibson from the early sixties.
