Product Description

Sold originally in 1959 as a student guitar, the Melody Maker’s unique feel and sound quickly found its way into the hands of young beginners and professional musicians. The single coil pickup design gave a special tone to the Mahogany body and neck.

We offer our Melody Maker replacement pickup in three ways: traditional single coil, P90, and humbucker.

The single coil is a duplicate of the original wind and sound that hasn’t been heard since the originals. The P90 gives a robust and burly punch and the humbucker lets you dive into higher gain with more attack.


DC Resistance: 8.5k

Application: Gibson Melody Maker with single coil




We are passionate about quality so we ask for your patience while we craft your pickup. Depending on the nature of your order, it may take up to 6-8 weeks for delivery.

  1. A "must have" upgrade! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 2nd Aug 2018

    The original single coils in a Melody Maker D have their own charm, but they are very noisy for modern tones. These p90s are an amazing upgrade and gave new life to my already amazing guitar. I hope to try the humbuckers as well.

  2. Excellent replacement pickup for mid-60’s Melody Maker 5 Star Review

    I ordered the P90 version of this pickup. It sounds great, has way more response and body than the originals which are kind of thin and microphonic. It was well worth the wait. I put it in my ‘65. Couldn’t be happier!
