Gibson's Golden Era--the late 1950s and early 1960s--is best known for the emergence of the company's iconic Les Paul Standard. But the Les Paul wasn't the company's best-selling guitar during this historic period. That title belongs to the legendary Melody Maker. Now Gibson has taken the Melody Maker design and expnaded it into four completely new models that give the beginning player a chance to have the Gibson Experience at an astoundly low price. Made in the U.S.A as they always have been.
