2.2.18 Fun new toy. Got this 2007 Gibson Melody Maker from my buddy Rich for 60 bucks. It was gutted with no hardware except tuners. He had stripped the finish off as well. So, in goes a Burstbucker 1, a Luxe Black Beauty paper-in-oil cap, some old hardware including a pair of old Fender amp knobs and it lives! A rock'n'roll monster if there ever was one. Through one of my fuzz faces it's downright spectacular. Ah, the simple things!
