Lovies Guitars is excited to offer up this 2009 Gibson Joan Jett Signature Melody Maker Electric Guitar with a Worn White Finish! Probably best known as a member of all-girl punk legends The Runaways, and for her eighties hit I Love Rock ‘N’ Roll, Joan links the seventies glam of Leather Tuscadero from Happy Days (ask your folks!) with today’s punk rock goddesses like Brody Dalle and Allison Robertson of The Donnas.

The Gibson Melody Maker was originally launched as a single cutaway Les Paul style model in 1959. Designed as a student guitar, it later became popular with 60s garage punk bands and is now an affordable classic. Joan’s signature Melody Maker is based on the double cutaway model launched in 1961. Jett’s Melody Maker is like a muscle car. The slim mahogany body exudes 60’s cool but there’s some serious firepower under the hood. When Joan bought her MM in 1977, she fitted a Red Rhodes Velvet Hammer humbucker in place of the single-coil.

Gibson has replicated the hot output of the Rhodes item on her signature with its own Burstbucker 3. Other cool details include a reassuringly sturdy kill switch and a thick black vinyl scratch-plate. You also get an ebony fingerboard, ‘witch hat’ control knobs and a set of Grover Mini machine-heads. The whole package is topped off with a worn white finish that helps add to the guitar’s vintage vibe. This guitar is in excellent shape with pickguard marks, rated at 9.8/10. All original and free of any breaks, cracks or repairs. Included with this guitar is an original hard-shell case and a complimentary sample of Fret-Not, our preferred fretboard cleaner, check it out at fretnot.net! Thank you for considering this exceptional instrument from Lovies Guitars.
