This Melody Maker is in great shape with full, original frets and a killer neck.

It is pretty amazing that a guitar in this condition would need a new pickguard, but the one on the guitar is a replacement.  Everything else appears to be original to the guitar.  The Grover tuners were used as often as Klusons on this model.  

We ran through the entire guitar, as we do with every instrument that hits our website.  The neck, frets, truss rod, pickup output - all is checked and verified to be functional and the specs are listed below.  

Comes with a non original hardshell case.
