Gibson 1960 guitar and bass catalogue. Page 12. Details of the Les Paul Junior and Melody Maker and Melody Maker 3/4. Since the previous (1958) catalogue, the Les Paul Junior has been redesigned with a double cutaway body shape. Interestingly the Les Paul TV, which is just a Junior with a limed-mahogany finish, is listed as an SG-TV, despite also having the double-cut body style in the catalogue picture (see previous page).
This is the first catalogue appearance of the Gibson Melody Maker; a mainstay of the Gibson range for the rest of the decade.
