Overall: I wanted a guitar with P-90's but wasn't sure which guitar would suit me best so I went to a local guitar center tried out a bunch 8 guitars I think and last but not least was a melody maker with a single p-90 and I fell in love!!! So I decided to go home and order the 120th Anniversary Gibson LP melody maker for the price I'm not sure you will find a better sounding guitar!! This thing sounds great out of my vox AC30cc2 for cleans sounds amazing out of my bogner ecstacy classic for an amazing rock tone even sounds good out of my mark V in high gain spectrum!! Very versitile this thing had mojo right out the box.So if your looking for a great guitar for under 600 bucks look no further can't say anything bad about this guitar even the TV yellow finish was really nice!

Overall: Guitar is great. The only issue I had was there was a little bit of fret buzz at the 3rd fret on the low E string. I just had it set up now this guitar just howls those p90 pickups are awesome. This guitar will be a collectors item one day with the 120th anniversary inlay. Thanks zzounds

Overall: zzounds is simply amazing.I can not believe how fast my many purchases arrived, no extra cost for fast shipping. The pay as you play plan enabled me to get a great guitar for myself many months before I thought I would get one. Zzounds is the best out there period.

Overall: I wanted this kind of Les Paul for a long time: satin nitro finish, rosewood fretboard, P-90 pickups, and LP traditional headstock. Sounds great, and looks cool too. Purchased Manhattan Midnight and TV Yellow from zZounds. I love this 2014 Melody Maker and you will love it too!
