1965 GibsonMelody Maker D – Cherry

This 1965 Gibson Melody Maker D in Cherry is a great vintage guitar for a steal of a price! We find that these were and still are very underappreciated for their value. This neck is fast playing and has a great feel, and these two single coil pickups and vibrola make this a dynamic and wide-ranging instrument with plenty of tonal options and combinations. This guitar is entirely original and still comes with its original chipboard case!
