We get a lot of modified Melody Makers, so it's always a real treat to come across one that's all original, like this ultra cool double-cutaway, double pickup model. This beauty dates to '64 & sports a perfectly sculpted neck that plays great up & down the fretboard. Professionally set up with fresh strings & low action so it plays & sounds fabulous.
Cosmetic Condition: Good honest play wear, just the way we like to see them - various nicks, chips, dents & dings; scratches, weather checking & some mild finis wear. Overall the guitar looks great, with an authentic vintage vibe & beautiful patina.
Neck: Mahogany neck that gets chunkier as you work your way up to the body. Beautfiul Brazilian rosewood fingerboard with mother of pearl dot inlays & cream side-dots. Frets are in great shape with practically no wear. Kluson Deluxe tuners work fine. 1 11/16" nut width; 24 3/4" scale length. Neck is straight & truss rod works fine.
Body: Double-cutaway, solid mahogany body with sunburst finish top. Compensated, wrap-around bridge with nickel hardware. Single-ply black pickguard with white Melody Maker logo. Guitar weighs 6 lbs 5.4 oz. Light weight & exceptionally resonant!
Electronics: Two single coils with black covers & 3-way toggle switch. Dual volume & tone controls with gold "top hat" knobs. Pots date to '64 & all electronics are in good working condition.
Case: Original chipboard case included.
