WTT: 1963 Gibson Melodymaker guitar for 4" Saracione
Looking to trade my beloved '63 Melodymaker for a Saracione to mount on my new spey rod. Got a Beulah Platinum 13'8" 8 wt. on the way. Sure would like to make a swap for a clean reel to put on it.
The Melodymaker was rebuilt after someone (somehow) put a large burn mark on the back of it. It also had been hacked to install a cheap humbucker in it. The guitar has been gone through from one end to the other and customized with the best accessories available. It has two DiMarzio pick ups (super distortion and a PAF) along with all new pots, switch and reverse phase switch. Speed knobs, Schaller keys and tunable bridge, new pick guard, and custom artwork and finish. It has to be seen and played to be appreciated. PAF has a really sweet sound, and the Super D, well it lives up to it's name. Guitar has been appraised at $1,200. Photos available on request.
