OVERVIEW

A limited edition, lean and mean rockin' machine. with dual P-90 growl.

Gibson USA has created this special Jonas Brothers Melody Maker, a guitar designed in the image of the original single-cutaway Melody Maker of 1959/'60, but with popular upgrades to solidify its status as a genuine tone machine. For several years, players in the know have turned to the Melody Maker as an accessible piece of genuine Gibson tonal splendor, and added their own slight modifications to turn this entry-level guitar into a true rock monster. To a thin and lightweight yet extremely resonant mahogany body like Gibson's original "student" model and the Melody Maker's simplified hardware and control layout, the Jonas Brothers Melody Maker adds a traditional full-size headstock for increased resonance and strength, and the addition of a second P-90 single-coil pickup, as originally carried on the Melody Maker's big brother, the Les Paul Special, along with other upgrades. To make it all stand out in pure Jonas Brothers style, all three brothers have hand”signed the pickguard and their trademark "JB" shield graphic adorns the front of the Satin White-finished body.

Through the course of four hit albums, two Disney Camp Rock movies and other film appearances, and several music awards, the Jonas Brothers have established a reputation for making widely appealing pop music. Songs like "SOS," "Burnin' Up" and "Lovebug" also glisten with a gutsy rock edge and attitude, however, and display the brothers' fondness for a chunky electric guitar. And through it all, the Jonas Brothers have favored Gibson guitars.

P-90 Tonal Characteristics
A favorite of rock, blues and pop players, P”90s are beloved for their crisp yet silky highs, punchy midrange, and slightly textured overall tonality. They are single”coil pickups that offer plenty of bite in all positions, yet they retain much of the punch and aggression of vintage humbuckers, too. In the neck position the P”90 is warm, thick and creamy but with plenty of clarity, while in the bridge offers crunchy rhythm tones and gnarly, screaming lead tones through a cranked amp.

Originally introduced as a student model, much like the Les Paul Junior, the Melody Maker became a player's favorite for its light weight, comfortable neck, and great tone.

Comments about Gibson Jonas Brothers Melody Maker Electric Guitar:

Seems like everyone that winds up with one of these inevitably states; " ..I got this for my daughter/granddaughter/niece etc.." but when you plug this baby in for yourself...WOW. Granted no one but a 13 year old girl can take the Jonas Bros seriousely for even a second ( c'mon GIBSON, really???) but dang this guitar is hardly a pink "Hello Kitty" guitar! Yank the Jonas Bros signature pickguard nonsense off or replace it buff /paint it out and no one will snicker when you cut loose with the onboard twin P90 snarl! I had the pleasure to play this guitar when a band mate brought his 15 year old cousin to a rehearsal. She brought her new guitar with her and after a few " Oh, how cute she brought her little toy guitar, snicker ,snicker!" moments we plugged the Jonas Bros Melody Maker in our amps and jaws dropped with the first power chord! It has the satin budget finish and needs the fret ends filed down , but overall this is a very cool guitar! If I had not bought a Gibson 60s Tribute Les Paul with P90s I think I would have tried this one out sooner! I will be looking for one of these used for sure! I have to hand it to you , GIBSON for giving us gear heads the lame excuse of " I'm buying this for my little sister" to validate yet another guitar purchase! Very cool P90 pick up loaded guitar for the money!

JB- I Like it

Comments about Gibson Jonas Brothers Melody Maker Electric Guitar:

Makes me laugh how everyone says they are buying the guitar for their 'daughter', but now they want one. I don't have a daughter so I have to admit it is for me. And why not? It is a tried and true classic design. I'm not bothered too much by the 'JB' Graphics, but I don't like the signitures on the scratch plate, so I will get a replacement or make one. You could always rename it the Jeff Beck Melody Maker! God Bless Gibson, God Bless Rock n Roll, God Bless The USA.

Stealth Les Paul Special

Comments about Gibson Jonas Brothers Melody Maker Electric Guitar:

I bought this little Gem for my grand daughter. But now I am thinking of keeping it for myself. The Plek setup, ebony fretboard & dual humbuckers it is the Gibson best buy of the year. If you were thinking of buying a Les Paul special, forget about it. Save yourself $500.00 & get this great ax. It has the same features & plays like dream!

Comments about Gibson Jonas Brothers Melody Maker Electric Guitar:

Bought one for my daughter for Christmas, but after giving it a whirl..I want one for myself! Ebony fretboard, fullsize headstock, twin p-90s, and a light and comfortable mahogany body and neck. what else could anyone possibly need? It's even plecked from the factory!! Too bad these are only limited to 300, I'd like to see Gibson contiue making these, and in other finishes. A great axe and a tone monster!!! No Lie!
