The solid maple body gives the Gibson Melody Maker Explorer outstanding clarity and sustain, and helps it retain sharp note definition even through a heavily cranked amp.
The Melody Maker Explorer's glued-in neck is crafted from solid quarter-sawn mahogany for superior strength and resonance, and carved to a superbly fast yet comfortable "Melody Maker profile" that measures .835" at the 1st fret and .930" at the 12th. In a contemporary departure from the norm, the fretboard of the Gibson Melody Maker Explorer is made from torrified maple, a heat-treated form of maple that has the rich brown look of rosewood but is superior in strength and durability, and totally sustainable besides. :cathappy:
Gibson USA loads the Melody Maker Explorer with one of its most versatile pickups: the single 491T humbucker in the bridge position is crafted in the image of Gibson's acclaimed PAF ("Patent Applied For") humbucker of the late '50s, but updated with a ceramic magnet for great power, clarity and sustain, and routed through a single volume control to keep it all simple.
Other features include a stud-mounted wraparound bridge at the body end, a set of enclosed tuners at the headstock and a PLEK-cut Corian nut for enhanced sustain and ultimate intonation precision. Since 1959 the Melody Maker series has brought full and uncompromised Gibson quality and tone to top-grade electric guitars priced for the student, novice, or the pro on a budget. .png" alt=":smileytongue:" title="Smiley Tongue" />
