WNAMM07: Gibson Revive The Melody Maker

Resurrecting one of the most popular guitars in their history, Gibson say that the Melody Maker is an accurate, affordable recreation 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 favorite for its light weight, comfortable neck, and great tone. Gibson tell us that today’s Melody Maker is no exception.
With a period-correct pickguard housing a special design singlecoil pickup, a vintage-style wraparound tailpiece, rounded neck profile, and slim, light body, they say that the Melody Maker is an unbelievable value for players of all ages, styles, and skill levels.
