Gibson Melody Maker 1969 – Hand painted

$ 1500.00

This is a late ’60s Gibson Melody Maker SG. Six digit serial number with no prefix or ‘Made in USA’ seem to suggest 1967, according to the information I could find online. Serial Number: 561339

It has not been treated very kindly! – it has been stripped of its hardware, all except the nut and a set of Grover machines. Neither are original, I’m sure. It looks like it’s been presented as a piece of art, perhaps an art project? The scratchplate is a blank, not a guitar part. It’s signed ‘Lisa’ within the paintwork.

However, the headstock and neck joint do not seem to have broken and the neck & fingerboard don’t look too bad.

Needs a fair bit of work, would make a great project for someone.
