  2. Like jim says who are you to believe,everyone must b talk-n out there butt -except- him

  3. Manny i was just stating that you model shown could be earlier than 60,and on the mid 60s to 61 it had seem to me i read somewhere that they had changed style in mid 60s kinda like you could get a new 66 mustang while it is still 65,I had got my info from Gibson Melody Maker- Wikipedia and not from the gibsonvintage.com site where ever that is and accord-n to Wiki MELODY MAKER started in 1959

  4. this model could be a 60s and not a 59 the double cutaway started in mid to early 60s the 59s had a single cut away also, but was called the les paul jr. GIB has a site --google-- GIBSON DATERS PROJECT site this will help you identify year by numbers on back of head stock.
  5. in my opinion and not to be disagreeing wit scales you might have a 59 les paul jr. according to gib website melody makers with double cut away didn't come out until mid 60s it started out as a les paul jr. and by look-n @ the tuners and over all condition (do not refinish) more value in original.i would say its leaning more to the 59 side
