2009 Gibson USA Melody Maker (White)
"Resurrecting one of the most popular electric guitars in Gibson's history, the Melody Maker is an accurate, affordable re-creation of the original Melody Makers of the late 1950s. Originally introduced as a student model, much like the Les Paul Junior, the Melody Maker became a player's favourite for its light weight, comfortable neck, and great tone. Today's Melody Maker Les Paul guitar is no exception. With a period-correct pickguard housing a special design single coil pickup, a vintage-style wraparound tailpiece, rounded neck profile, and slim, light body, the Melody Maker is an unbelievable value for players of all ages, styles, and skill levels.".
This one is a 2009 model in white with a clear mahogany grain visible. It's had a professional neck repair with a nitro refinish in the impacted area (difficult to see any signs of it, a very nice job by Brad Cannon). Given a full setup and service prior to listing, it's an awesome little guitar. Has a black spot on the neck where the nitro has worn through a guitar stand.
