Topic: 300 dollar Gibson. Too good to be true.

Musicians friend has Gibson melody makers for 299 this week. I aleays think if something seems too good to be true, it probably is. They are  single pickup guitars in 4 body styles. Les Paul, SG, Explorer and Flying V style. Has anyone had any experience with these. Is it a 300 dollar guitar, even if it is a Gibson. Is it too good to be true. It just seems odd that a real Gibson is going cheaper than some epis.It isn`t a stupid deal of the day. Any input will be appreciated

The Melody Makers are Gibsons budget lines JJJ. You know the score, get 'em into the brand young. I've not played one and I've not heard of Gibson having any problems with quality over here.

If it plays good, then you have a good guitar with a Gibson name.

if you dont like it MF is great about returns also.  No questions asked, they will sell it as B stock after that.

Re: 300 dollar Gibson. Too good to be true.

I went to buy the melody maker tonight.Guitar center was out of them.Now I am back to having 2nd thoughts again. I snoozed,I loozed. I don`t want to buy one without taking it for a test run first. Maybe I will make another attempt. If they had it.It would be too late now and I may have owned it.Then there would be no room for buyers remorse.

Good idea dino.They would have checked another store but I didn`t feel like driving 45 minutes to Natick. It`s not a necessity.Just a nice idea.
