Raffle tix are $1. If u buy 10 you get 2 free! Someone will win this guitar. Guitar will be given away at MODSTOCK. See Darin 543 2066 or Kristie 543 2065 for tix. Resurrecting one of the most popular electric guitars in Gibson’s history, the Melody Maker is an accurate, affordable re-creation of the original Melody Makers of the late 1950s.

Originally introduced as a student model, much like the Les Paul Junior, the Melody Maker became a player’s favorite for its light weight, comfortable neck, and great tone.

Today’s Melody Maker Les Paul guitar is no exception. With a slim, light, mahogany body and set mahogany neck; period-correct pickguard housing a special design single-coil pickup; vintage-style wraparound tailpiece; rounded neck profile, and rosewood fingerboard; the Melody Maker is an unbelievable value for players of all ages, styles, and skill levels.

Check the drop-down menu to the right to select colors and/or other options.
