1963 Gibson Melody Maker


  • Year: 1963 (Circa)
  • Manufacturer: Gibson
  • Model: Melody Maker
  • Case: GigBag
  • Color: Sunburst
  • Condition: Fair
  • Description: LOTS of wear, nicks, dings, scratches. The finish on the front is heavily checked, has lost it’s shine, and is flaking off in several areas. The serial number is hard to read, but the pots date 1346250, so I figure it’s an early 1963. It has the wider 1 11/16 inch neck. Several of the dot inlays have been changed, so have the bridge, tuners, 1 strap button, knobs, truss rod cover, and pick guard screws. The frets show wear, but still have plenty of life.
