2014 Gibson Melody Maker!!! Essentially similar to the Les Paul Custom Lite they made that year but with less gingerbread.
I had one, should have kept it. Mine came with EMG pickups installed so it was nice and quiet.

It reminded me of how great the wraparound tailpiece/bridge sounds. I have some stainless steel round head hex drive bolts that fit the threads of the tailpiece mount. I used washers to set the action, put the bolts in tight but not firm, strung it up, did the intonation thang and clamped it down. Clarity, deep bass and SUSTAIN for days!! Less fiddley changing strings too. Kept the pickups and the bolts, stuck a set of P-90s in it and traded it for a hand wired true point to point "clone" of a 1958 Vox AC-15 Top Cut amp mounted in a vintage hi-fi chassis. Figured there was only going to be one of those in my world and I can get another guitar.

Then, a multi-boogered late 50's early 60's single cutaway Melody Maker appeared in my life. I need to get her up and running but that one's a keeper.

Honestly, I think your Melody Maker is one of the best designs Gibson has ever produced. It looks cool, plays great and sings. Cheers, Kuru


There is never enough time to be in a hurry...

Yeah, and I ended up buying that Tom Anderson Classic I saw on eBay..."on its way even as we speak."

Back in the 60's, I read an article about Zal Yanovsky, the lead guitarist for the Loving Spoonful. He said he had a Guild acoustic 6, and a Guild acoustic 12, as well as Guild electric 6s and 12s. My brain went "POP!" and I knew that I wanted to have one of each too, acoustic & electric 6 & 12 strings, so I'd be able to get all the sounds. Later on I found out it was a lot more complicated than that, because different electrics sounded different; Les Paul vs Strat vs Tele vs jazz box, baritone, 3/4 size, etc etc. And there are the different acoustics; dreadnought, OM size, single O, double O, triple O, resonator, 12 vs 14 frets clear of the body, 6 string banjo, etc etc. And then there's bass guitars; 4 string, 5 string, 6 string, Jazz Bass Verses P Bass vs Music Man Stingray, maybe even Gibson basses, fretless, active or passive electronics, etc etc.

And I ain't EVEN gonna get into amps.

There is not now nor will there ever be enough.

Never
