A dynamite player with an ultra cool, true vintage vibe, finished in classic Cherry. The double single coils sound terrific & deliver rich, shimmering tones. Professionally set up & ready to play straight out of the case.
Cosmetic Condition: Good, honest play wear, typical of its age - various nicks, chips, dents & dings; scratches, weather checking & some mild finish wear. Overall the guitar has a great look to it with a beautiful patina.
Neck: Slender mahogany neck with cream side-dots. Brazilian rosewood fingerboard with mother of pearl dot inlays. Frets show some wear, but have plenty of life in them. Different tuners were on the guitar at some point, but the originals are now back on. 1 9/16" nut width; 24 3/4" scale length. Neck is straight & truss rod works fine.
Body: Double-cutaway, solid mahogany body in Cherry finish. Tremolo tailpiece with compensated bridge. Single-ply black pickguard with white Melody Maker logo. Guitar weighs 6 lbs 5.2 oz.
Electronics: Two single coils with 3-way toggle switch. Dual volume & tone controls with black "top hat" knobs. Pots date to '65 & all electronics are in good working condition.
Case: Unoriginal, vintage hardshell case included.
