This is a vintage 1963 Gibson Melody Maker solid-body electric. Super lightweight with a classically chunky and comfortable Gibson neck. All original, despite a previous owner having installed non-originals at one point, enlarging the peg holes. The original Kluson Deluxe tuners are back on and work perfectly. This is the double-cut version with a single-coil pickup with a bite! Beautifully...
This Gibson Melody Maker was made in the USA in 1963. It is all original but must have had a non original tremolo of some sort as there are extra holes on the top. There are no breaks or repairs and the neck is nice and chunky. It comes with a gigbag.

The affordable Melody Maker became Gibson’s best-selling solidbody guitar by the mid-1960s. It also followed design...

1961 Gibson Melody Maker in sunburst finish. This is the double cut version. This is all original and in very good condition, Serial # 244xx. A few little dings and nicks. Light weight at 6.0 pounds. Original single coil sounds great! Natural checking throughout. Rosewood fingerboard. Set up nice and low. Comes with a non original hard case.
Serial # 516261. The Pelham blue turned Cadillac green of this mid 1960's Melody Maker has got us all fired up here. It's just a gorgeous color, even if not at all blue any longer, and more than makes up for this guitar's shortcomings! The finish is completely original, but the yellowing effect of the original 50 year old lacquer top coat acts as a lens over the blue undercoat - and voila!...

A really cool 1965 Gibson Melody Maker. I love these. Nice Fat Necks, not pencil thin like many 1960's Gibsons and this one sounds fantastic with the original Gibson Melody Maker Single Coil Pickup.
All original except the Ping Tuners and Leo Quan BadAss Bridge. Both upgrades and the original parts had probably worn out. The Bridge is an older one made...

Vintage original 1965 Gibson Melody Maker. This is a supremely fine example, all original and purchased from the original owner. Plays and sounds fantastic with that signature vintage tone. Neck has a great feel and playability is superb. Pickup is nice and strong. Comes with original vintage case, too.
This Gibson Melody Maker was made in the USA in 1964. The guitar shows normal play wear but is in very nice shape overall, and it is all original except for 1 potentiometer. It has a nice full profile neck that feels really good to play. It has been pro-setup and is ready to go. It comes with a newer hard shell case in nice condition.
All straight and good playing MM from early '62. Non original truss rod cover is the only change on this one. Has a few minor nicks and dings but no repairs or modifications. with non original case.

Absolute sleepers of the vintage market, 1961 mahogany necks feel amazing!
Btw. Lollarguitars makes a killer drop-in replacement pickup and pickguard if you want to go that route.
A classic. A straightforward Gibson solidbody from the heyday of bands like Gerry and the Pacemakers (or was it Peacemakers?), Vanilla Fudge, we could go on. 100% original except for one small, solid improvement, that of the original cheesy open-back tuners being replaced by new, high-quality covered Kluson replicas. The rest all there: pickup, dated pots, finish, the whole nine yards. Get up on...
