    Hi Everyone,

    I've read conflicting information about the early Melody Makers having a Brazilian fretboard. Does anyone have any authoritative information on both years? Thanks.

    Not authoritative by any means, but I thought all of Gibson's pre-1965 rosewood fretboards were Braz, including Melody Makers.

    Thanks. I had read that all pre-1962 were Braz.
