1989 Gibson Melody Maker Flyer Pro II Electric GuitarGibson
For sale is a super rare and interesting guitar from Gibson. This model is the Melody Maker Pro II, part of Gibson's designer series of the 80's, these guitars were part of Gibson's catalog from 1987-1991. It features an explorer style headstock, a Kahler Flyer tremolo with string lock at the nut, Grover tuners, a pair of Bill Lawrence pickups, all finished in black with a Celebrity series pearloid pickguard in a single cutaway Melody Maker shape. Tonally this guitar is big and clear, lends itself perfectly to overdriven and pushed distorted sounds and maintains clarity in that realm. Cosmetically the guitar is in good condition, with signs of wear such as surface scratching, pick wear, dings and scratches on the edges and few spots of chipping. This is a total oddball guitar, a marriage of classic Gibson aesthetic with serious 80's hair metal thrown in the mix.
