Melody Maker, studio, SG bodied

Al B.

Recommended Posts

I have a 68 Melody Maker, SG bodied, studio model. Pickups were replaced some time ago as was the finish. Originally the guitar was Pelham Blue with white single coil pups and guard. A 3 position slide switch controlled the pup selection. Original paint was shot as well as the 3 way switch. PUPs were too low powered for stage use. Now living in Chrome Orange.


Anyone else still have thiers in OEM condition? These were made for only a few years.

Don't have one, but the pickguard looks cool. Neat little guit.


Thanks Jay. The guard is a match to the original, just black instead of white. Hard to believe no one else has one. I know they made this particular configuration for a couple of years in the late 60's.
