1965 Gibson Melody Maker electric guitar, double cutaway , serial number is 300976 , this one is light ( under 6 lbs on my scale) with original finish ( checked with little dings here and there, neck is comfortable,neck angle is excellant,action is set low,still more room for adjustment.There is a drivers license number ( or some numbers on the back of the neck), between the tuners. Tuners have been replaced with Schallers , bridge likewise has been replaced with a Schaller adjustable model. Pickup is a Dimarzio,'Made in USA'. I pulled it loose to see the brand, it sounds great with nice overtones,a splitter for single coil mode, plays clean well .I have not had the pickguard off, the retaining screws look original, hard to move. Knobs have been replaced, still has the pointers though. Frets are wide,almost like a Paul, guitar shows playing time ...resonance and old wood make good sounds......currently set up with 10 / 46 D'Addarios, plays and sounds spot on. Comes in a semi rigid lined vintage case , which show the years, bout is still in good shape (all latches,handle work) Fully insured shipping to the states runs $35.00 , check with me for worldwide.
