1959 Gibson Melody Maker with Matching 59 Gibson Amp

Picture of 1959 Gibson GA-5 Coming Soon! 

Incredible All original 1959 Gibson Melody Maker. 100% Original one owner guitar. Comes with a matching 1959 GA-5 Skylark Les Paul Jr. Amp! This match set was bought brand new here in North Carolina in 1960. It was lovingly played by its owner for 50 years. The amp has just been serviced by Mad Science up in Durham and sounds fantastic. This guitar is 100% original with a vintage curley cord and whats left of the original case! This will be a great addition to any vintage collection and represents a fine example of a vintage Gibson Melody Maker.

The Guitar

The Melody Maker plays wonderfully and fools you with the tonal one two punch it delivers from its compact size. This instrument can delver a raucous searing tone to warm cleans all with the simple turn of the volume knob. The tone can change fro a bright and clear to a warm "Clapton-esque" woman tone with a twist of the tone knob. And in playing we were all surprised at how fun she actually y was to play. Bending is a breeze and chording is a blast on this little rocket.

The Amp

The 59 Gibson Amp really is a great pairing with this gem of a guitar. The amp allows for a great push when overdriven and cleans up really nicely as well. She is a greta practice amp and a phenomenal recording piece of equipment. We paired the right with a basic reverb and we were sitting in tonal heaven. We even smiled more we we remembered we were getting there with 60 year old gear! Needless to say, this amp and guitar is a world of fun!
