Gibson Melody Maker 1959 Reissue Dual Pickup
Manufacturing USA 2 single coil pickups, 1volume 1tone and slecteur 3 positions
black ebony what! very class.


A handle very pleasant and very good sound on the 3 mic positions
especially the neck pickup (trs stratosphere) and Position 2 microphones (sound tlcaster)


I use it with a small marshall 8040
in clean sound good bass good attack
distortion excellent sustain and foie well
uses only the bridge pickup is a bit lightweight, simple desktop model Standard
is therefore rather avoid.


This guitar bought new guaranteed 419 euros + gibson two years in the perfectly rgle
out of cardboard, fits perfectly the agreement ... it is a RARE CASE, not even for the
price a strat mexico.
I still can not, of course I have a usa stat that makes better, but diffrent
Also, this GIBSON DUAL MM PICKUP supports competition

Gibson Melody Maker 1959 Reissue Dual Pickup
- In what country does she makes?
manufactures in the United States

- How many frets, what kind of micro as well as their configuration?
22 frets, 2 micro mm90 of the same style as the p90 but softer for a better flexibility than the single coil that is already incredibly versatile for its simple microphone, then two, you can imagine ^ ^

- What type of bridge?
easel-like wraparound for a good substain trs

- What are the rglages?
very simple configuration, one volume, one tone and a 3 position switch

- What type of race?
gibson round typ C


- The handle is it enjoyable?
handle pure gibsonnien ^ ^ nice round to fit perfectly to the bone of the hand, close to "an acoustic guitar but with the advantage of electric els ^ ^
You still need a little time to adapt if vpus had another type of fender guitar quite late, but you will abitu ds will have the foot ^ ^

- Access in acute (dernires freight) is it easy?
ben is not a Start but it is still accessible even for a lespaul ^ ^

- Ergonomics is it good (in terms of shape, weight ...)?
exceptionnet weight for lespaul less than 3kg I think, no back pain hihi,
and best of all its c that is really fine dc closest to the body, for good or against it is no patent on the guitar gives a vintage look rather special but what he needs to have ia of diamond on this one for the sound ^ ^


- Appropriate are your style of music?
I play mostly rock, blues and sometimes I'm a fan of slash, and even with a simple micro I think its about the same ^ ^
rather low on the rhythm, it can still be good for solo if you boust stroke of a small distortion pedal

- With what (s) amplifier (s) or effect (s) do you play?
I play a marshall mg100dfx, I take the last grain of my amp because I was formerly a Squier 51 and despite its micro doublel Navai it not the same sin as this one, if I play mostly on my tone port gx and c the sound was crying ^ ^

- What kind of sound you get and with what rglages?
already that the vacuum is amazing but then you branch your sound that rocks!!
micro is really accurate, the neck pickup is very round and warm, great for light to raprocher acoustic sound and distortion it is even more destructive ^ ^ and the bridge pickup, it is crystal-clear, almost like a telecaster and sharp for the distortion, a pity that the microphone is not double but as a fishing


- How long have you use it?
I use it for less than a week, and it's already mad love xp

- What is the particular feature you like best and least?
The +: its extremely low price for a gibson, to have someone of little posibilit frica (like me xp) to acquire a permetre GIBSON, weight is as light as its price but is all the more satisfying ^ ^ Finally I can find so far no major defect is that this beautiful beast ^ ^ no matter what ... I t deu enough to have to lug around me that this beautiful horse in its original carton or because it does not come with a box, rare gibson ...

- How do you report qualitprix?
then! it really is a dream ^ ^ gibson tearing at the cost of less than a squier and epiphone, what about ...
this guitar is a true small bomb just waiting to express s
then I think that it is not put lacquer on this guitar is good, because it's better now that we no longer fear the scratch and then the bonus is the price ^ ^

- With the exprience, you do again this choice?
then I ask myself not even the issue because a price is o reason to take a guitar with a 1000euro diamonds all around, the bottom was a simple guitar but the sound that has 1000euro, then if one day the misfortune arive to break it, no problem to replace it ^ ^

Gibson Melody Maker 1959 Reissue Dual Pickup
Usa.Qualitée guitar made for good but not buy this guitar for cabinetry.
It is equipped with 2 single pickups the bridge is vintage but I do not have too many problems with accuracy or désacordage as certain, he must play his hand without asking too dessus.Les Tone control and volume are super efficient and greatly affect the son.Le handle is fine and I managed to fine tune the action and it became the perfect ... The bends enchainent ... What a treat!


I traded this guitar to a buddy against my Ibanez AS73 flaming because when I got it in hand and I played it (after a good setup) it was a blow to the heart, because I wondered how could leave such a beautiful crystal clear sound for treble and bass but still very detailed profondes.Le handle is a feast of light guitar (it's a plank mahogany) but then what a sound! I play a Epiphone Blues Custom 30 Amplifier and a vox pathfinder 15r and frankly for the price it is on the tube amps or transistor sound obtained by modulating the tone is wonderful (see on youtube there's a guy who plays in his shop). J got a GIBSON BFG also who is in another world of sound but the two complement each other well for blues or rock!


As said above it is perfect for me she is my favorite ...
I use a Boss Blues Driver and a Maxon OD808 and an old LOCOBOX COSMOCHORUS (end of year 70) and with these effects jes am filled with MELODY MAKER whatever the position of microphones utilsés.J love everything about this guitar the 50's look, the lightness, the price for those who buy new (WARNING, it appears that manufacturing is finished in GIBSON)


I've had it a week after an exchange of guitar
When I first saw it I was surprised by the concept of the Violin (plank mahogany) mechanical vintage bridge but also of very good quality (GIBSON DELUXE)
I adjusted the guitar, I plugged the tube amp and then I do not regret my Ibanez AS73 (indeed excellent and beautiful). I became hooked on the guitar ... I I had quite a few guitars and I always (4 acoustic electric and 4) but this blew me away GIBSON MELODY MAKER! value for money is excellent for those who love this style of guitares.Je remake that choice oh yes and nine if he had to!

Gibson Melody Maker 1959 Reissue Dual Pickup
Manufacturing: United States
Body Type: Solid body
Body Material: Mahogany
Neck: Glued
Neck Material: Mahogany
Fingerboard: Rosewood
Number of spaces: 22
Pickups: 2 single coil Gibson "Special Design"
Mechanical: Oil bath
3 position selector
1 Volume and 1 Tone
Simple effective if that is what you are looking for is 10 but I put -1 for cheap paint. Channel


end space between the strings too small for my fat fingers.
In addition, painting hangs a little cheap, you have to play pretty good for that round is faltering. There has not fret over that and claw (like the Epiphone Studio I've tried).

Access to acute as normal on a Les Paul.

Easy adjustment is not much. Even setting the guitar 2 key wool enough.

The ergonomics are excellent single selector position is misplaced if you attack too much.



Personally I have a weakness for the intermediate position with the tone at 8, the sound is clean, warm and clear.
For cons, I could not get the plaintive sound of a Les Paul "normal" you will say is the single coils.

7 mics are quite nice but they do turn quickly.


This little melody-maker is clear: the price / quality ratio is unbeatable, a Squier Start at the same price does not cut it. The finish is good Gibson did not let go, no burr cutting the pickguard or drip paint. Only the latter choice is bad.
I was looking for a cheap guitar, light and punchy. And it perfectly fulfilled the specifications for 6 months and then I'm tired (it lacks finish and souls).
The level it has nothing to envy my Dan Armstrong ADA6 and microphones are more dynamic than my Washburn WI 64 relic.
Very nice guitar carton but not settled and plastic film stuck on leaving marks.
Try it if you have doubts, but is it not better to save and afford a good guitar finish and flattering.

Go go power on May 1
