    I recently got a '66 SG Melody Maker and it struck me that during the span of just a three years ('63-'66), Gibson used the same body style for (technically) three different models - the redesigned Les Paul, the SG proper, and the redesigned Melody Maker. It's also kind of interesting that they each seem to have slightly different shapes to the horns; however, some of that might just be sloppy Photoshopping out of the background on my part.

    Anyway, no real point to this thread other than sort of thinking "out loud" and sharing my three examples. It's not like we have a surplus of activity in this corner of the forum (which happens to be one of my favorites). :p

    Enjoy!

    Lovely examples :)

    Is it just me or is the Melody Maker a different scale length?

    Might just be the pics - but the body width and length seem to match the other 2 slightly but the fret board and bridge seem longer..
