Sweet......ass.........guitar right there, bro!
Ok... almost a year since I got this, but now its up and playing again. Made a new headstock and repaired the scalloped fretboard and so on... . Decided not to do a total restore/refinish right now, since I like the look of the old wood and have more use for a humbucker guitar. Maybe I will do it later...
The old MM brothers.
The restoration thread, in case anyones interested: http://www.mylespaul.com/forums/luthiers-corner/341110-1960-mm-project.html
Kasu, I like it!
That's cool man, what kind of pups did you throw in that bad boy?
Bill Steer from Carcass recently switched to a '61 Melody Maker from his '77 and '79 Customs due to nerve issues with his shoulder. His has a Duncan '59 in the bridge. Versatile fiddles these be. I wish I would have grabbed one of the closeouts a few years ago...
500T/496R... Works very nicely I think... .
Man , I really wanted a Wilshire but with a kid in school ,I saved a grand plus...found a "players" Olympic and gave it the p-90 treatment
Wraparound slab and a p-90 ,what's not to like ...
I suspect it may be gettin a DeArmond in the neck soon
Awesome to see that old MM doing the deed! These axes are so underrated
Tell us more please.
Well, this is pretty much a Melody Maker, as it was made @ Parsons Street in K'zoo on the same pattern, just a different headstock.
My '67 Epiphone Olympic with batwing headstock:
Kind of intrigued by this one. I've been considering throwing out an offer for a few days...
Gibson Les Paul Melody Maker
The question is: How can you say no to that?
I have a 2014 MM...Anyone ever put a full tunomatic and stop piece on on of these? I've been mulling this over to get my intonation dialed in. I know of the combo pieces available but don't really like the look.
1968 sg, I love it/her.
I'm always sending people who post new MM's to this thread, yet am guilty of not posting my own, due to either lousy pics or laziness. The latter being the more likely culprit because I've had these pics for a few weeks.
So, here's my 2008 Melody Maker, acquired sometime late last year:
$200. Couldn't say no.
This thread continues to make me happy. It's epic.
Melody makers make people happy!
