This is a 2011 Gibson SG Melody Maker in black finish with an added Bigsby-style tremolo. This model was offered by Gibson as a stripped down and affordable, American made axe. The instrument features a single covered 491T humbucker in the bridge position with only a volume knob making for a no-nonsense rocker guitar. The body is solid maple, making it a hefty instrument at nearly nine pounds. The added tremolo functions well, but an oversight on the part of the previous owner makes it necessary to use a right-angle instrument cable to allow clearance for the bar. It also causes a bit of imbalance, adding more weight to an already heavy body. Despite the issues with the trem, the sound is nice and big, and the guitar plays nicely. Ships in a Coffin Case gig-bag.
