Jonas Brothers Melody Maker

Mahogany has a long history as a tonewood for premium electric guitars, and this light, responsive, fine—grained wood also forms the cornerstone of Gibson USA's new Jonas Brothers Melody Maker. Created along the lines of the slab—bodied Les Paul Special, yet with a slightly thinner body, this single—cutaway design is archetypal Gibson, while offering a simplicity that appeals to many down—to—earth players, too. To make it all unique, however, Gibson finishes the guitar in nitrocellulose Satin White with an appealingly tactile texture, and tops it off with a custom "JB" shield graphic on the body front.

The guitar's solid quarter—sawn mahogany neck follows the traditional full—sized 24—3/4" Gibson scale length, and is glued into the body for optimum resonance and sustain. It is carved to the popular Melody Maker SlimTaper™ profile for speed and comfort, and carries a full—thickness headstock like that of the Les Paul Junior and Special. For a bit of luxury, the neck is topped with a premium ebony fingerboard, as used in several of Gibson's up—scale models. To up the ante on the Melody Maker's traditional narrow single—coil pickups, Gibson includes a pair of genuine P—90s with Alnico V magnets, traditionally a favorite single—coil of countless blues and rock 'n' roll guitarists, and routes them through a simple array of master volume control, master tone control, and three—way toggle switch.

A Corian nut with PLEK—cut slots ensures optimum ring and sustain at the headstock end, while a rock—solid, stud—mounted wraparound bridge/tailpiece offers the time—tested combination of simplicity and performance down in the meat of the body. Top it off with a set of vintage white button tuners, and you have got an instrument that is simultaneously timeless and contemporary.

All this, and your Jonas Brothers Melody Maker comes protected in a padded Gibson gigbag, and is covered by Gibson's famous Limited Lifetime Warranty and 24/7/365 customer service. Check one out now at your authorized Gibson dealer.
