A genuine Gibson Les Paul at a price that won't break the bank, and a weight that won't break your back: the 2014 Gibson Les Paul Melody Maker.

The 2014 Les Paul Melody Maker offers incredible value with the innovation and high-quality crasftmenship you've come to expect from Gibson over the past 120 years. In honor of Gibson's 120th Anniversary, Gibson is proud to present the stripped-down, straight to the point Les Paul Melody Maker which may be slimmer in size but is anything but slim when it comes to tone.

The 2014 Les Paul Melody Maker is crafted from the traditional tonewoods that made these instruments legendary, with a solid mahogany back topped off with carved maple, except they're constructed into a thinner body profile to offer player a lightweight alternative to some of the notoriously heavy Les Paul models for enhanced player comfort. The glued-in neck is carved from maple into the comfortably, rounded '50s profile and a rosewood fingerboard that sports 22 corrosion-resistant, cryogenic-treated frets, a part of Gibson 120th Anniversary features, for incomparable fret life plus dot position inlays and a commemorative 120th Anniversary inlay at the 12th fret.

Under the hood is a set of Gibson P-90S bridge and neck pickups built in the image of legendary P-90 pickups. Made with genuine Alnico pole pieces, The Les Paul Melody Maker captures that coveted P-90 single-coil tone with enhance clarity, depth and dynamics. Holding true to its predecessors, the pickups on the Les Paul Melody Maker are routed through the traditional control complement, with an independent volume and tone control for each pickup and a 3-way pickup selector switch.

This Les Paul Melody Maker has everything you need, and nothing you don't – it wears no pickguard and features a satin chrome “lightning bar” wraparound tailpiece for incredible sustain and resonance while the vintage-style white-button tuning machines cater to the Melody Makers retro appearance. The Les Paul Melody Maker also benefits from Gibson's 120th Anniversary features which includes enlarged, no-slip strap buttons to keep your guitar fully secured throughout your entire performance, black Max Grip Speed Knobs, a GraphTech nut, long-life proprietary coated guitar strings and a full PLEK setup. A durable Gibson gig bag comes included with your purchase of the Les Paul Melody Maker.

              I love Les Pauls in general, but I am really impressed by how well this guitar plays. Neck is comfortable and the pickups give an awesome vintage type tone. I love the fact that it is not as flashy as the Les Paul Standard or Classic. Great guitar for a great price! This is a real hands on product review by Sean@ Sam Ash Music Ontario.

                Comments about Gibson 2014 Les Paul Melody Maker Electric Guitar:

                This is my 3rd guitar, the other ones were the worst you can imagine multiplied 10 times. I went to the store looking for a LP studio or the min e tune versions. I ended up testing this one because of its price besides the studio, a min e tuneand the the junior. Maybe because my first guitar was a strat I liked this one better. If you don´t mind the coil noise and are looking for a great guitar you have found it, believe me. The finish isn´t out of this world, but the red one i bought looks awesome and may look cooler with aging. In the end, the only way to be sure is test them out and choose for yourself.

                Not much money for a "Live At Leeds" sound.
