Will a P90 fit in this pickup route without enlarging the hole? Can these be upgraded to an SG Junior without modification? Thanks

Sweet guitar...and nice page...cream on walnut is just the classic SG look Used to have one with the full size headstock Where are the soundclips?

I have a Gibson Melody Maker in Pelham blue. I purchased the guitar used in 1973. The s/n suggests 1966 production. Any idea how many were shipped with this finish. I have really looked after it, despite playing it often. Great guitar, and one to pass on to the kids. Regards Chuck

Hi Chuck - sorry shipping figures for the Melody Maker were not listed by colour in 1966, so it is very hard to draw any accurate conclusion, but Pelham blue SG-style Melody Makers, although not especially rare are certainly less common than the sunburst and cherry double cutaway version.

I have a 1969ish (serial number dated) Walnut larger headstock Gibson. From the setup it appears to be a Melody Maker, but has a P90 in the bridge slot and a toggle switch where the slider usually is (doesnt appear recut for either), any ideas?
