Vintage guitars for sale: Gibson Melody Maker

The Melody Maker was an entry level solid body guitar, produced from the late 1950s, throughout the 60s, and with a reissue in the 70s. It was produced at the legendary Kalamazoo factory, Michigan, USA. In those early days, Gibson produced some exceptional guitars out of some very fine old woods, with high quality nitrocellulose finishes. Lower end models, like the Melody Maker were no exception, though they were not fitted with the most powerful pickups, or robust tuning keys. Consequently many have been upgraded over the years. These often make far better players than unmolested examples, but, due to their lack of collectability, sell for exceptionally reasonable prices.

Models to look out for: All guitars prooduced before 1970: single cutaway, double cutaway, and SG-style.
