Gibson Melody-maker, Double Cutaway (1962, Tobacco Sunburst)

Another simple old Gibson, melody maker 1962, serial no 600457. Probs the simplest of vintage Gibson’s, range a melody maker. Twin Pickups plastics covers with Moulded Gibson Logo/Name. Separate bridge/tail piece. Perhaps the Tune-o-matic bridge is probs non original, the guitar is a Brown burst. Rosewood fretboard with dot markers. Small minimal guitar, quite functional. Kinda nice really. This example looks to have had a relacquering. Must have been iconic as it shares its name with the famous Melody Maker Music Magazine. Lives in its Gibson Case.
