Limited lifetime waranty. one year warranty on parts and electronics.
Gibson’s Golden Era—the late 1950s and early 1960s—is best known for the emergence of the company’s iconic Les Paul Standard. But the Les Paul wasn’t the company’s best-selling guitar during this historic period. That title belongs to the legendary Melody Maker. Now Gibson has taken the Melody Maker design and expnaded it into four completely new models that give the beginning player a chance to have the Gibson Experience at an astoundly low price. Made in the U.S.A as they always have been.
Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I was totally blown away by the quality and price of this made in the U.S.A. guitar: everything was perfect, from fit and finish, to action, to the sound coming from the pickup. No switches or tone control, but you can get some tonal variation by dialing back the volume or picking closer to the neck. If you're a gigging musician, bear in mind that it's also quite a heavy guitar, but the benefit of the weight being that you get TONS of sustain. Came with tags, a manual, and a very nice gigbag, as well. Very happy with this purchase!
This guitar is simple. Only one pick up and one volume control, but it is a quality product with superior craftmanship. I love the sound. It comes with no additional set up needed: light gauge strings and frets flawlessly. I paid less than $285 and received this guitar in less than 2 business days.
