Vintage 1963 Gibson Melody maker double cutaway sunburst finish with checking overall,factory option maestro vibrato .
Great jazz and blues guitar, all original including the frets. Figured ash body, two-tone sunburst finish, maple neck and bakelite parts.
Add renowned Fender reverb, flexible controls, and footswitchable (with optional footswitch - product #420703) FAT circuit for golden tones, and you're in business.
And just look at that chrome panel, that tweed finish with pinstripe grille cloth, and those vintage pointer knobs!
The neck, dated May '56, still has the "clubby" pre-V shape typical of '55; it has some wear and original nut and frets. but, compared to the '55 "no-lines" they have again the single-line stamped Kluson Deluxe words. The black-bottom pickups fixed to the single-ply pickguard have the original bakelite covers, two of which are broken from playing wear.
The Spaghetti logo on the headstock is in great shape, and next to the original round string-retainer there is another hole, professionally plugged and touched-up, from some mysterious "thing" once screwed to the headstock; whatever it was, it's out of the strings line, in a position which makes meaningless another string-retainer, so I have no explaination for it. Also the tone and volume knobs and the trem-arm and switch tips are made of bakelite.
