Put a decent set of pups in, and if it holds tuning, that's all you need. While I wouldn't pick the color for myself, necessarily, it's got a retro kinda vibe.

I have a new guitar coming my way, LLB, and you're responsible.

On the M2 I tried, the bridge doesn't properly mate with the posts, requiring a bit of DIY manufacturing or a new bridge. Needs a real nut and possibly some real/used pups if you can't make do with a Probucker. Will need real pots if you ride them.

Aside from that, cheap melody maker.

Hate to say it, but Gibson can't get their act together. Fender, PRS, and loads of other guitar makers can make great, affordable guitars but they can't? Shame.

With the melody maker, a little work can make it a great player, I'd bet. I pretty much feel the same on any guitar, with a half decent foundation.

I would dig it if it was a different color. Great chance to have a US made, but I don't have the money anymore. I spent some on parts for my plywood guitar already.

Nothing wrong with plywood. My Gretsch is basically particle board or some crap. Neck feels great, holds tuning even with the Bigsby. It's the TV Jones pickups that make it sound great, not the wood, or lack of it.

Yeah I know... I'm not into "tonewood". I just feel that it lowers the value.
