Gibson introduced its beloved Melody Maker “student” lineup in 1959, and it has been a favorite of players seeking great tone at a great value ever since. Now remodeled, the Gibson Melody Maker Special packs quite a wallop!
In this article, we talk about:
- A Mahogany finish for a sonic depth and richness that can’t be beat
- A pair of powerful Gibson P-90 pickups similar to the Les Paul Special
- Vintage-style white-button tuners with a 14:1 tuning ratio
- A choice of four gorgeous nitrocellulose satin finishes—Cherry, Yellow, Ebony, and Blue Stain
