2014 Les Plaul Melody Maker
Everything about it is perfect right down to the width and tummy cut! The pickups are the new generationof an old version era 1948 The AlnIII Rods pickup were called PU-290s of then were installed on the older jazz boxes then in '52 were switched over to the slit screws on the Gold Top Les Pauls with the elongated trapeze bridge anchored on the strap button. The '55-57 introduced the famous AlnV staple bridge pickup on the new Les Paul Custom mahogany top layered on a mahogany body, these Melody Maker LPs sound alot like those oldie but goodies. Maple cap on a thinner mahogany body, these guitars also feature the new P-90s with the upgraded Fender styled AlnV magnet Rods adding a bold unique even toned output and sweet and rude tone all its own. Better than the previous P-90s albeit when engaged with an Overdrive they yield a beautiful full bandwidth frequency response unique to its design, and with the thinner body it still carries it weight full chords and cutting midrange leads and for the price it can't be beat made in the USA, Tenneessee sweetness be it rock,blues, country you gotta try it , I did and bought one right off! And it comes with a beautifully lined thick gig bag/case protecting it as any good product Gibson would make it's Gibson at it's best.Try one and you'll be hooked especially with the beautiful round neck not too fat but not too skinny neither, just pure tones at the best priced Gibson out did themselves.guitar comes in 4 colors too.
