Gibson Les Paul Melody Maker Guitar Review :: Electric Guitars Reviews

very affordable price for a starter instrument + classic vintage growl perfect for everything from roots to punk to blues.

musical instruments image

The original guitar was introduced in 1959 and was based on the same philosophy: American-made quality at a price for the beginning player. These musical instruments feature a mahogany Santa Maria body with a lightweight ’60s-style slim taper neck and rosewood fingerboard with dot inlays. The single dog-ear P-90 pickup emits classic vintage growl perfect for everything from roots to punk to blues. The Gibson Les Paul Melody Maker comes in three cool satin finishes for an aged look: Satin Ebony, Satin Cherry and Satin Yellow. Tune-o-matic bridge and chrome hardware.
This is a lean and mean rockin’ machine and a fine starter instrument.
