I've wanted a Joan Jett Melody Maker for a long time. I see them come up every once in a while, but the price heads for $1,000. I got bitten by the bug again, and resigned myself to a regular MM. I found one on eBay that was going unsold, and offered to buy it outright, after the auction ended. $330 shipped, with a case. A really bad case, that is only good for shipping. This is the dual-pickup version, available only in 2007 through Musician's Friend/GC. Here it is when it arrived at work: Not very Joan Jett. Only a single cut, too many pickups, no humbucker, pickguard incorrect, different bridge/tailpiece, no ebony fretboard.... Maybe all it has in common is "Gibson" and the color "white". I decided to go with an "inspired" guitar. And... I wanted to keep it cheap, in the spirit of a Melody Maker. I have a Seymour Duncan Antiquity P90 that I picked up from lunchmeat here in the Member Classifieds... I added a pickguard that I cut from an old LP. The final piece I needed was mounting screws for the P90. I made a thread, requesting a couple of screws, and ltdave32 offered a set. He sent them to me at no charge. THANKS Lt.! All together, and ready to rock.
