Cathedral Guitar

* SOLD * Vintage 1961 Gibson Melody Maker, Modded Soapbar P90 * SOLD *
w/Side Mount Tele Jack, DiMarzio P90 + Rio Grande Jazzbar P90
Nut Width: 1 11/16" (42.2 mm); Weight: 5 Lbs, 13 Oz.

Up for consideration is very nice Gibson Melody Maker with our LPJ dual Soapbar P90 mod -- making this a fantastic playing and sounding guitar. Featureing a beautiful straight-grain, old-growth Honduran Mahogany body, and a nice Brazilian rosewood fingerboard -- all of which are by now long gone and impossible to find, the guitar has a full-sounding DiMarzio P90 in the neck position, and a Rio Grande JazzBar P90 in the bridge, both housed by custom leopard wood covers, and it plays and sounds fantastic. Vintage 1961 Gibson guitars are now ridiculously expensive, so here is a great opportunity to pick a very cool vintage 1961 Melody Maker / P90 and still play an amazing vintage early 60s, vibey, Gibson solid-body electric guitar at a greatly reduced price!!

This guitar came to us previously modded with stripped finish -- so it was the perfect candidate for our LP Junior P90 mod. A few parts are original, but the tuners, electronics and bridge are modern replacements. a custom pickguard was made to house the DiMarzio + Rio Grande P90s, and some routing was done to the body to make room for the wider P90s. Action and frets are good, and the 1 11/16ths nut and the famous 1961 neck profile is very comfortable to play. This is a player's guitar that plays great with no issues, and really does sound amazing. Does not come with a case.
