Gibson Melodymaker (1959,Tobacco)

Super simple old Gibson, melody maker 1959 with “cardboard” case..

Probs the simplest of vintage Gibson’s, a melody maker. Single pick up, all in one bridge/tail piece. Brown burst with crackled checked nitro paint. Rosewood fretboard with dot markers. Small minimal guitar, quite functional. Kinda nice really. Must have been iconic as it lent its name to the iconic Melody Maker Music Magazine. Lives in its thin cardboard like Case.
