Joan Jett Signature Melody Maker...nice axe
THAT is the one I want.
I haven't posted in the grand appreciation thread in a while. (It is grand in the best way).
I've been looking for an Explorer MM for a while. Found one! I scrounged some unloved pedals and a couple goofy little amps.....flipped them quickly on Reverb.com and voila -
I did a family photo update today. The family has a new pointy member....
Less can be more. I love these guitars.
That there is some serious Melody Maker Appreciation.
Hats off to you Sir!
Bump because reasons.
Yes they are!
I dig mine!
Very good condition MM, congrats
If you ever find one. Buy it. Awesome guitar. Plus the neck is different than anything else I have ever played. Feels fatter than the 50s to me.. here is my JJ, nothing original but the wood though
That looks amazing!
Well done, and I know what you mean about the neck feel......
I recently traded away my 2007 (rarely played) double single coil LPMM only to find this beast a week later... The V is awesome! This one has a Duncan Distortion and Grover tuners. What I find interesting is that my LPMM had no grain filler and was very rough looking. The finish was so thin that if you looked at it the wrong way it may have come off! (haha) The back of the neck developed gloss from playing but was never really smooth because of the deep grain. The V on the other hand has a much smoother finish and is glossing up nicely from usage but the back of the neck looks and feels like any other Standard gloss finish now. I also scored an original Leo Quan Badass Bridge that will be installed soon. I'm liking it a lot!
Joining the MM club as soon as the brown truck arrives. Got this one incoming from Norm's...
Just got this recently - I think I'm in love with Vs now. They're so comfortable, sit on your body the way you need them - and it isn't as heavy as my LP. The Paul still has more tonal variety and its a great sounding guitar, but this Melody Maker V is just a rock beast! I love it and I'll be holding on to it.
I traded in this fella:
...for this fella:
I can't seem to be able to turn down P-90 temptation, and it's in near-mint condition.
Well done sir, I love mine.
I know many MM purists don't like them, but they are great, unique guitars. These have a chance to be pretty desirable down the road since it was a one year production model. I've had mine for a little over year now and I could make money on it tomorrow if I wanted to.

People - changing knobs on a 2007 MM the shaft of the volume pot came out with the knob - �� - where do youse recommend I get a replacement? Thx
Well, it's time to sell my MM. Picked it up in early 2015 and fell in love. It is the yellow, so hopefully it'll sell quick. I'm building a new pedalboard and want the Strymon BlueSky and need a clean power supply. I used to play the MM all the time until I picked up my G&L ASAT. I would bring the MM to practice every Tuesday and when Sunday rolled around, I'd grab the ASAT because it had the right sound. It even gets played more than my Studio, which is my nicest guitar. I hate that the MM sits there, so I'll send it to a good home and fund my newest additions.
Don't remember if I posted on this thread, But, Here is the one I owned. Really miss her! She REALLY ROCKED!
