    I think it's amazing that the most expensive of my three MM's was $385.

    Red P90 MM - $385 used eBay
    Burst dual pickup MM - $350 new on clearance - local shop
    Black single pickup MM - $320 used eBay

    I buy the MF.com Les Paul hard cases when they are on sale for $39 and fold a towel under the body to take up the extra body space. That's about as much fun "made is the USA" as you can have for $399 or so.

    My first post on here, and I'll soon post elsewhere, but I have a black Melody Maker on its way to me as we speak. Got it for £200 which is @ $290 or so.

    I'll post pics here when it arrives:wow:

    Gotta throw in my review of the one that came my way.
    I already know that the hate mail is coming my way, but had to be honest about this one. Everybody knows that I love all of the single coil Gibsons.....but, I was never so happy to sell anything in my life.

    I think the prices are still excellent on vintage MMs.

    Thank you Singlecut. It's nice to know that someone out there (over the age of 17) is not screaming at me for that review. lol Just gotta call them as I see them. Some of the vintage MM's were awesome and some of them weren't. The era of the one's pictured in your avatar were tons of fun, but they had so many versions that were just aweful and some others along the way that were also fun. These new one's.......just plain aweful. If you other kids enjoy them, that is great. Just not for me.
