GIBSON MELODY MAKER (BABY BEAST)
This is a 90’s Gibson TV Melody Maker and a part of my Hillbilly Collection. This 3/4 scale Baby Beast has been outfitted as a Vintage late 50’s Les Paul Jr. with a Period Specific thick Bakelite Pick Guard and an upgraded Original Gibson Dog Ear P-90. It comes with a hard shell case. As a young man I had a friend who’s father had an original 50’s Les Paul Jr…. It looked just like the Melody Maker featured here… I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to borrow his awesome 50’s Jr. for an extended period of time.. I only knew 6 or 7 chords at that time, but quickly learned quite a few more on that Guitar… It’s impact was such that it colored my entire early Guitar experience… I guess I have been chasing that 50’s Les Paul Jr ever since… This is my homage to that Guitar and I tell you it looked very similar to this one and if memory serves, It sounded just like it too!
Plays like a dream..and sounds great! It comes with a hard shell case… Simply Put…This Baby Beast…Is A MONSTER AND PLAYS AND SOUNDS AWSOME!!!
