    It's old, it's beat up, but plays great and sounds killer. Always had the desire for a vintage guitar and I wanted something to play some old school punk and alternative music with so I made a trade and ended up with this fine specimen. This thing is feather light, which is great for a smaller dude like me. Can't wait to play some shows with her!

    Always loved the melody maker shape and the skinnier Gibson headstock. Happy ngd!

    That is awesome. I had one back in the 80's when they were dirt cheap, and I put some high output pickup in it. Since yours already has a pickup swap that is a plus as it makes it more usable, and less collectable which is better for actually playing. I guess there are some people that liked the original pickups, but I didn't at least when I was a kid. Anyways, congrats on that great guitar!
