1970 Gibson Melody Maker 12-String No Longer Available

Comments Here’s a rare piece – a 1970 Gibson Melody Maker 12-String! Melody Makers were Gibson’s entry level instruments and lots were made, but the 12-string was not at all common. This example is in good playing condition and has no structural problems. Very cool!
Serial Number 904045, built during 1970 in Kalamazoo, Michigan.
Pricing $1,799.99 CAD with non-original case.
Neck Mahogany neck with unbound rosewood fingerboard, distinctive narrow Melody Maker peghead. 24.75 inch scale length.
Frets Original frets with light to moderate wear.
Body SG-style lightweight mahogany body
Finish Original gloss nitrocellulose finish in good condition. Naturalk on the neck, but the body has what might have originally been a copper colour, but now tends towards burgundy, with a slight metallic tinge.
Hardware/electronics All original! Kluson delxue strip tuners with creme plastic buttons, single-coil pickups, sliding selector switch, individual volume and tone controls. Adapted, intonated stop-bar wraparound bridge with the 12-string tailpiece also used on Gibson 6/12 doublenecks.
Playability/Action Currently set too low for the upper register – 2/64ths treble and 4/64ths bass – in the chording parts of the neck, the guitar plays cleanly and easily.
Case Gator bass case included.
