This 1963 Gibson Melody Maker has been refinished many years before we have put it up for sale.
Superb action and smooth frets are just a few qualities that this straight mahogany neck and rosewood fingerboard have to offer. Both frets and fingerboard have been professionally worked on. The frets have been filed down, sanded, and then polished. The fingerboard has been properly oiled. The head stock face shows finish checking below refin clear coat. The back side and top edges of the head stock have dents and chips under the refin clear coat as well.
There is absolutely no finish checking anywhere on the refinished body. There is however swirl polish marks on both the front and back of the guitar. Thin refin clear coat is apparent on treble side cutaway.
Both neck and bridge pickups and all electronics (2 volume, 2 tone, one 3-way selector) are fully tested and 100% functional.
Modern 3x3 deluxe tuners have been put on this guitar and are possibly better than the original tuning machines. Both stop tail bridge and mounting hard wear seems updated as well.
Oversized hard case is included in sale. The hard case is a step up from a chipboard case.
