Cosmetic Condition: This 70’s Gibson Melody Maker is nuts! The walnut finish is pretty sweet- with only minor damage accrued over its 44 year lifespan. The top of the body has a few small scratches and some edge wear. The off-white pickguard looks excellent against the walnut body. The treble side bout has some dings on it. the back of the body has some buckle rash on it and is missing the back plate., exposing the pots and jack. The neck has various dents and nicks. The headstock has a repaired crack and the Gibson emblem is missing some letters. The headstock has some noticeable edge wear. This Melody Maker is playing great and ready to rock!

Playability: The strings are nice and low, play great, and ring out clearly across the board.

Modifications/Repairs: I6s humbuckers have been installed. The headstock has been repaired and touched up. A vibrato has been added. The bridge has been replaced. A bone nut has been installed. The truss rod cover has been replaced.
