Up for grabs is this 1959-60 Gibson Melody Maker. The entire guitar has been refinished, with all parts being changed. No breaks or repairs. Single cutaway body, and a wide style pickup cavity (non-original short style pickup currently installed), makes the guitar most likely a '59....but it can be a rare, early '60 with these appointments. Full scale length of 24 3/4." This one has some magic, as it plays incredibly well. Slinky low action from top to bottom. Super resonant too. The pickup is a Actodyne General Inc single coil, which was made by Don Lace, of Fender Lace Sensor fame. So the pickup is a true single coil, that's quite, and sounds big & clear! There's something about this one....gig bag included!
