    Hello!
    I bought in Greece a new old stock melody maker 2007 reissue.
    Mine was made in 2011,it has the lp style body,single coil pickup.
    The body and neck are mahogany and the fingerboard appears to be baked maple which is fine by me.
    I searced the internet but i didn't find a similar guitar, which is a 07 single coil reissue with baked maple.
    Anyway, the guitar looks and plays great and i am happy!
    When i was searching to buy a guitar, i was looking at forums like this.
    So i thought you might like to see some pictures

    Not sure why you call it an 07 reissue. It looks more like a copy of my 1960 Melody Maker. Also, Gibson didn’t really start using baked maple until 2011 or 2012 when the Feds seized their rosewood.

    Yes you're right.
    What i meant is that in 2007 gibson made these models which were somehow close to the 1959 melody makers.
    About the baked maple i guess this is the case you mentioned

    I don’t remember the 2007 ones but I do remember when yours came out and was thinking about how close they were in design to the old ones. I hope you have as much fun with yours as I had with mine.

    That looks great. I like the wood on the fretboard. Good looking grain, with even coloring.

    I don't know that there was "baked maple" in 2007. I think that was a 2011 introduction.

    I have one they are great. A Seymour Duncan lil 59 strat bridge pickup fits in with minimal effort too.
