Take It From The Top

A gorgeous, vintage 1961 Gibson Melody Maker in vibrant three-tone Sunburst gloss nitro lacquer finish is a rare offering indeed, and extremely difficult to source in this kind of exquisite condition. First introduced to an unsuspecting world of musicians in 1959, the Melody Maker became regarded as the more affordable answer to the Les Paul Junior. Crafted in Kalamazoo, Michigan, the Melody Maker was redesigned to a double cutaway with a double pickup version in 1961. This two-pickup, double cutaway version is the rarest variant of the model, as it was released in a very limited volume. With a superb tone and feel, this 1961 Gibson Melody Maker is a wonderful collector’s item and still sounds amazing when pressed into action.
