Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? This quitar is obviously made very well. You can see and feel the famous Gibson quality everywhere. General Your general opinion of this product. It's amazing when you think about it. New or intermediate players spend this much money or more on imported guitars. The quality and performance of this quitar is incredible for the money. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? The tone knob provides a very broad range on each of the amp settings. This makes for some limitless variations of sound. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? I like the satin finish far better than I thought I would. All my other guitars have been gloss. The feel on the neck is actually real smooth. It actually feels like I fine sanded it.
This guitar is not what I was expecting.

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? Not long ago I was in my local music store and I spotted a white Gibson Melody Maker. I picked it up and played it for a few minutes, but due to other guitarists playing close by, I couldn't hear the tone well. I decided to buy this guitar to see what Gibson could offer under their brand name at this price point. This guitar was nothing like I expected it to be. It is so much more and then some. Out of the box the set up was spot on. The neck is simply awesome and a joy to play. the light weight and simple design has an asthetic appeal all its own. General Your general opinion of this product. My number one guitar has been my Les Paul Custom. However, since this MM arrived, I honestly can't stop playing it. After a little tweaking of the control knobs on the guitar and amplifier, I found the perfect sound I was looking for from a single coil guitar. I love this baby- she sings so beautifully. I purchased mine in ebony and after a small application of Gibson's guitar polish, it has a beauty and charm all it's own. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? This guitar is awesome sounding. It has enough power to rock your neighborhood or if you make a few adjustments with the contols on the guitar and amp, you can kick back and play beautiful melodies. Also, the volume and tone knobs are very linear. You only have to turn them slightly to hear this baby capture a new nuance of tone. The tone is awesome. I pulled out my Les Paul Custom to compasre and my LP is one heck of a great sounding guitar. But, after a little tweaking of my controls on both guitar and amp, I was amazed at tonal variations you can get from this guitar. If you want to rock your neighborhood or just kick back and play some mellow blues, you can do it with this guitar. It is amazingly versitile. The sonic capaabilities will amaze you. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? I have heard that some of the MM have premature wear on the finish. I have the ebony finish and it seems to be very durable.
Better than a Studio Delux

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? Yes !! Gibson has failed me in the past but not this time ! General Your general opinion of this product. As a kid I had a Melody Maker and have always based every guitar I have owned on the playability of my first Gibson and the truth ,Gibson should make the rest of the Les Paul family as well as they make the Melody maker!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? All of the above . It all depends on your playing and mixing experience. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? Ok ,I would have preferred the cherry but settled for the black.
