Gibson sg melody maker

Gibson sg melody maker DEFAULT

The Melody Maker was Gibson's most inexpensive solid body electric model, slotting below the Junior. It was originally introduced in with a body shape similar to the single-cutaway Les Paul Junior, and a narrower headstock design that makes it cheaper/easier to build by not requiring wings to be glued on like the regular open book headstock. This changed to the double cutaway Les Paul style in mid It wasn't until late that it finally adopted the SG bodystyle. A string and three-pickup version were added in In , the 3/4 size model was discontinued and the headstock was upgraded to full-size.

In , the Melody maker was effectively replaced by the short-lived SG // models.

In , it was reissued with the SG shape and a Maple body.

Gibson Melody Maker

The Gibson Melody Maker is an electric guitar made by Gibson Guitar Corporation. It has had many body shape variations since its conception in

Model history[edit]

Regular issue (–71)[edit]

Variations of Melody Maker: Double Cutaway(×2), EpiphoneOlympic Special (asymmetrical small body, with short vibrola, and Double Cutaway(symmetrical small body with pointed horns, two pickups)

The Gibson Melody Maker was first launched in and discontinued in [4] It had a thin slab-style mahogany body and a one-piece mahogany neck.[4] All the electronics, from the small single-coil pickups to the cable jack, were assembled on the pickguard and installed in a rout in the front of the body. The strings ran from a straight-sided simplification of the traditional Gibson headstock at one end to a wraparound bridge/tailpiece unit at the other.[5]

Body style[edit]

From until ,[2] the Melody Maker had a single cutaway slab body style similar to the early Les Paul Junior model but thinner. In the body style changed to a symmetrical double cutaway, resembling a Gretsch or a Danelectro Shorthorn; the single cutaway model was discontinued.[2] The body style was changed in to a style similar to the SG, with pointed "horns", a large white scratchplate, and white pickup covers instead of black.[3] Note: Melody Maker "D" refers to the double pickup model of any vintage but is often mistakenly used for the double cutaway model.[4]

Options[edit]

Options on the Melody Maker included two pickups, the "D" model and a short-scale 3/4 neck.[3] In a twelve-string version and a three pickup version were introduced, the Melody Maker 12 and III respectively.[2] A short length version of the Vibrola vibrato device was also available as an option.[3]

Colors[edit]

From to the finish was a sunburst, from to it was cherry, from it was fire engine red or pelham blue, in red was replaced by sparkling burgundy and walnut became an option from [2] Rare examples were made to order in other custom Gibson colors e.g. Inverness Green.[6]

Melody Maker SG[edit]

Gibson Melody Maker SG in Pelham Blue

This was the first Gibson Melody Maker that featured the devil-horn body style of the Gibson SG. This model featured a nitro lacquer guitar finish in a variety of solid colors. It housed up to three single coil pickups (depending on the model) similar to the P pickup. Almost all the guitars featured a stock Vibrola unit used to bend strings to alter the pitch of a note. The models were made with cheaper components for newer more inexperienced players. Gibson stopped production of these SG models in because of financial issues, they continued manufacturing the classic melody maker body style at various points throughout the years.[7]

The Melody Maker was discontinued and replaced by the SG , and [2]

Revival[edit]

The Melody Maker double-cutaway model was revived in and discontinued again in [3] Some minor changes were introduced into the design including single coil pickups embossed with the Gibson logo, all metal tuning pegs and a latter-day Gibson stop tail piece and Tune-O-Matic bridge.

In , Gibson issued a Melody Maker with a single-cutaway body. It had one humbucking pickup, Grover tuners, a Tune-O-Matic bridge, and a stop tailpiece. Two humbucking pickup models with two thumb switches were also made but are hard to find.

Melody Maker Flyer/Pro II (–92)[edit]

This rare model features an explorer neck, Grover tuners, Kahler tremolo system and dual humbuckers. The body is standard single-cutaway Melody Maker. The finish is black with a pearloid pick guard.

All American II[edit]

The Gibson All American II was built in the mids as part of the company's "All American" line which also included The Hawk and The Paul II.[8] It was inspired by the original Melody Maker, but differed from it in having chrome tuners, no scratchplate, controls rear-mounted in the traditional Gibson solid-body style, and a bridge/vibrola unit.[9]

The All American II featured two high output single coil pickups creating a tonality similar to a hotrodded telecaster than a typical Gibson instrument.

The All American line was discontinued in [10]

Les Paul Melody Maker[edit]

Main article: Gibson Les Paul

The Melody Maker was returned to the Gibson line as a sub-model of the Les Paul model.[11] It offered a mixture of traditional Melody Maker features (straight-sided headstock, white button tuners, jack positioned on the top) and traditional Les Paul Junior features (bridge-mounted dogear P pickup, Junior-style control mounting and pattern).

Like both the original Melody Maker and the original Junior, the Les Paul Melody Maker featured dot inlays as fretboard markers and did not have a cap on its top. Unlike either the original Melody Maker or the original Junior, both of which used wraparound bridge/tailpiece units, the Les Paul Melody Maker used a Tune-O-Matic bridge and separate stop tailpiece.

The Les Paul Melody Maker also differed from other Les Paul submodels in the width of the neck and the length of the heel.

Melody Maker[edit]

In , the Melody Maker became a separate model. It now has a smaller single-coil pickup than the P, a wraparound bridge/tailpiece unit, a mahogany neck, and a pickguard similar to the original Melody Maker. The CEO of Gibson said in reference to the new Melody Maker that it could "almost be considered a reissue of a Gibson Melody Maker." The guitar is offered in satin finishes and is one of the most economical Gibson guitars in recent years. It was originally offered in single and dual pickup configurations. The dual pickup configuration was discontinued in and is now considered a collectors item on eBay[12]

Joan Jett Signature Model[edit]

In Gibson released the Joan Jett Signature Melody Maker. It differs from the standard model by having a single burstbucker 3 humbucker pickup, an ebony fretboard and a double-cutaway body in white with a black vinyl pickguard. It also features a kill switch in place of a pickup selector. Jett has owned her Melody Maker since and has played it on all her hits.[13] It retails for $[13] There is now also a "Blackheart" version of this guitar introduced in All specs are the same, but it is finished in black, with red and pearl heart inlays.

Melody Maker[edit]

In Gibson released the Flying V Melody Maker, Explorer Melody Maker, SG Melody Maker and the Les Paul Melody Maker. All feature a humbucker and 1 volume knob, at a MSRP of $us. They are limited edition and the colours available are Blue, Satin White and Ebony. A two-pickup model (Melody Maker Special) with Ps, pots and toggle switch mounted on a large vintage-style pickguard was produced in in satin TV yellow, Cherry, Blue and Black nitrocellulose finish.

Les Paul Melody Maker[edit]

In , the Melody Maker name was reused for a new Les Paul variant. This single-cut variant uses the thinner body of the Les Paul Custom Lite, with a carved maple top, and a satin nitrocellulose finish. It also incorporates a maple neck with a 50's rounded profile, a full-size Les Paul headstock with a "Melody Maker" truss rod cover, and two PS pickups. These pickups, based on the original pickups of the Gibson ES, use Fender-style Alnico slug magnets as opposed to the usual bar magnets.

Gibson Melody Maker SG

The 'big two' companies arguably dominate both the guitar market and the airwaves with unprecedented levels of saturation. But while Fender is expert at making sure there's a 'proper' Stratocaster for every pocket, Gibson's efforts at making its classic outlines affordable for everyone have so far been less effective.

Sure, you can pick up a Les Paul or SG from Gibson's Chinese-made Epiphone range for reasonable money, but it's the idea of owning a USA-made guitar with 'Gibson' on the headstock that possesses as much allure today as it ever has.

"The guitar has a resonant acoustic voice, which makes for a wonderful snarling rock 'n' roll machine."

No amount of fanfared hi-tech misadventure or reports of poor quality control seem to be capable of causing anything more than minor dings in the lustrous gloss of the brand's heritage and desirability.

In light of all this, when the new Melody Maker series was ushered in at the Frankfurt Musikmesse in March, it seemed like an inevitable success story given the instruments' sub-£ pricing.

Of course, this isn't the first time that Gibson has manufactured Melody Makers in the USA and marketed them squarely at the affordable end of the spectrum.

Back in December , we got our hands on the vintage- style Melody Maker that was priced at less than £ for a solid mahogany, USA-made affair with one single-coil pickup, scratchplate-mounted volume and tone controls and a satin finish. At the time of writing, this model is still in production, although prices have inevitably crept closer to the £ mark.

Of course, the Melody Maker name has plenty of heritage of its own. Production began in , when Gibson was struggling to shift Les Paul Standards but making great inroads by selling 'student' instruments to youngsters having music lessons in retail stores.

Following the single and double-cutaway Juniors, the original Melody Maker was introduced with a single-coil pickup, a thinner body and a narrower headstock than its siblings, and was priced at just $ way back then.

It may have been a cut-price design, but lest we forget that Gibsons of this period were all made to a very high standard from the kind of materials that today demand a massive premium. A Brazilian rosewood fretboard on a 'student' guitar? You bet.

Fast-forward to and Gibson's newest Melody Makers obviously aren't hand-crafted from premium tonewoods. Indeed, they don't even share many common materials with the majority of the solidbodies in the Gibson range. The

Les Paul and SG Melody Makers here have set mahogany necks, but unusually feature maple slab bodies and torrefied maple fretboards.

The process of torrefaction is a high-temperature treatment that makes the wood more waterproof, stable and durable. It's also totally sustainable and the material takes on a richer hue as a result.

In this instance, it has the obvious aesthetic advantage of making maple resemble the rosewood 'board that you'd expect to see on a Gibson electric.

We did wonder if the fretboards on these Melody Makers had been stained but a cheeky scratch didn't seem to betray any signs of pigment being worn away.

Although the single-cutaway Les Paul and SG outlines here have both graced Melody Maker designs in the past - the former from and the latter from until the model was discontinued in - the more flamboyant among you should check out the Seymour Duncan HBloaded Explorer and Flying V versions.

Appointments are otherwise identical, although we'd expect the different body shapes to have a subtle impact on the instruments' tonal properties in the usual way, with the V in particular likely to boast a slightly more 'scooped' tonality thanks to a lack of body mass behind the bridge.

Back to the guitars here, and if you're wondering whether or not any corners cut in the manufacturing process will be visually evident then the answer is a resounding 'yes'.

The combination of minimal grain filling and a crude satin nitro-cellulose finish straight off the spray gun has left plenty of visible sinkage on the Les Paul's body, while the SG fares slightly better - a good thing given that more grain is visible through its satin blue paintjob.

Both guitars have what Gibson describes as a "unique Melody Maker neck profile", and although neither is the most even carve in the world, both are satisfyingly chubby and substantial palmfuls, with which we feel immediately at home.

Neither PLEK-cut Corian nut gives us any cause for complaint, but the fret jobs on both unbound necks are disappointing compared to other instruments in this price bracket, USA-made or not.

Both guitars have sharp fret ends above the 12th fret on the treble and bass sides, suggesting that this is another area in which the need to keep manufacturing costs down has impacted on the end product.

Both scratchplates have pretty sharp edges, too. It's less of a problem on the Les Paul, but the edge of the SG's larger pickguard - which also means that the whole bridge has to come off for access to the wiring - sits within the playing arc and it's all too easy to skin your knuckles on the way down towards the strings, especially if you're the type of player who flails at their instrument with any kind of abandon.

On both guitars there's a significant hazard on the way back up towards the strings, as well - the Fender-style volume control position is handy for volume swells but the knobs do stand dangerously proud of each guitar's top, so beware if you're a windmiller.

Sounds

Electric guitars don't come much simpler than this. Both the Les Paul and SG Melody Maker feature a solitary ceramic-loaded T humbucker wired to a single volume control. And that's it.

As a result, manipulation of the guitar's volume and picking hand position and intensity suddenly become your principle tone-shaping tools. It's a scary ride, but it sure is exhilarating.

Both guitars have a strident, resonant acoustic voice which, in combination with a pickup that has bags of output and attitude, makes for a wonderful, snarling rock 'n' roll machine.

There's more top end than you'd expect to get from a traditionally appointed Les Paul or SG Standard, but this is no bad thing.

Played through a quality valve combo revved up to AC/ DC-style levels of grind, it's hard to keep the grin off our faces with either guitar strapped on. Rolling back the volume cleans things up without proceedings getting too woolly - the bite of a ceramic magnet coming in handy - although obviously you shouldn't expect much mileage for jazz and country.

These guitars might appear to be strictly rock machines but we managed to coax everything from Revolver-era Beatles to GN'R rhythm sounds out of them; mighty impressive for a single-pickup instrument. Bluesmen take note, too - these are great slide guitars.

Any differences between the sonic performances of the two instruments are negligible - we put this down to the loud pickup and the fact that although they're different shapes, they're the same weight - so if you like what you hear, the choice is an ergonomic one. Oh, and colour of course. We'd like a white SG, please.

Congratulations, Gibson, you've left us mightily confused this time. How can two guitars that exhibit so much evidence of sloppiness in the manufacturing process and that come with their fair share of practical foibles be so bloody likeable?

The answer is that it's a vibe thing. Despite some significant flaws, we'd happily take to the stage, or studio, with either of these guitars - after we'd given some attention to the frets - for any sort of vaguely rock-based gig and be confident that they'd do the business while looking great into the bargain.

An Epiphone Les Paul Standard, for instance, is undoubtedly a better guitar for the money, and it's certainly more versatile with more attention to detail on the production line.

But this, at least in skin-deep aesthetic terms and above all sonically, is a real USA Gibson. Snobs? Us? We're just guitar players…
