Cathedral Guitar

* SOLD * Vintage 1960 Gibson Melody Maker, Modded to Les Paul Junior w/P90 * SOLD *
Original Neck/Headstock Finish, w/Side Mount Tele Jack, Rio Grande P90

Up for consideration is very nice Gibson Melody Maker with our Les Paul Junior mod -- making this a fantastic playing and sounding guitar, with the original finish still on the 1960 neck and headstock. The guitar features a beautiful Honduran Mahogany body, and a very dark Brazilian rosewood fingerboard, all of which are by now long gone and impossible to find. Also, the guitar has a beefy-sounding Rio Grand P90, and it plays and sounds fantastic. Vintage LP Junior guitars are now well over $5k, so here is a great opportunity to pick a cool vintage 1960 Melody Maker / P90 and still play an amazing vintage 1960 vibey Gibson solid body electric guitar at a reduced price!!

This guitar came to me after a body refin, and a body refin removal, and no electronics -- so it was the perfect candidate for the LP Junior P90 mod. Neck, Headstock, nut, and tuners are original, and electronics and bridge are modern replacements. Custom pickguard was made to house the Rio Grande P90, and minor routing was done to the body to make room for the wider P90. Action and frets are good, and the 1 11/16ths nut and the transition late 1960 neck profile neck is very comfortable to play, as it is not as big as the late 50s and still not as thin / wide as the 1961. The guitar plays great with no issues, and sounds amazing. Does not come with a case.
