It has had many body shape variations since its conception in 1959. The Gibson Melody Maker was first launched in 1959 and discontinued in 1971. It had a thin slab-style mahogany body and a one-piece mahogany neck. All the electronics, from the small single-coil pickups to the cable jack, were assembled on the pickguard and installed in a rout in the front of the body. The strings ran from a straight-sided simplification of the traditional Gibson headstock at one end to a wraparound bridge/tailpiece unit at the other. Serial: 120161. Pretty clean vintage Melody Maker. Some wear on the bottom of the guitar and very light finish checking. Marks near the top horn. Otherwise the electronics are clean and the neck is straight and true. Strap is hardwired on. Not even any buckle rash on this one!more
