Okay I've got some serious gas for a melody maker, I was looking for a guitar for around $400 that felt like my Les Paul but sounded different and I'm pretty sure this is it. I've just got a couple of quick questions.

This is the one I'm looking at, http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&Item=290336810620&Category=33040&_trkparms=algo%3DLVI%26its%3DI%26otn%3D2
how does it look, do you think it's a good deal and not a scam of any kind? Does it look like it's in good condition?
Second, would it be possible for me to route out a neck pup and place most likely a Gibson P94 in there?
Third, could i easily move the input jack to the side of the guitar (i know I would have to drill a hole in the wood but i just need to know if it's thick enough)?

Thanks for your time I think that is all.

Have you played one yet? I'm willing to bet it will not feel like your Les Paul.

i have to say the headstock is ugly and iver never seen anything made by gibson without an epiphone logo for under 750 so ~shrug~ but that being said i dont know much about melody makers and it looks cheap so it very well could be cheap

i really like them alot. you cant compare it to any other gibson really, but compare it to a fender in the same price point or any other brand in the price, you might not get as many features as some other guitars, but it is a super solid guitar for its price (made in usa is not too shabby )

what i mean by feeling like my lp is scale length, my ibanez is 25.5 and i just have issues with switching lengths.

i say go for it, the necks feel great. and i'm sure thats no scam. the melody makers come in a funny box and everything. i just looked and the one you're looking at on ebay has the funny box lol

anyway, i personally wouldn't want a melody maker unless it had a p90. i can't stand the headstock, either, as somebody else already said. now forgive me, i'm going to yell at you:

MM means music man in my head how dare you get me so excited for a melody maker.

anyway, i'm sure you'll end up with a decent piece of guitar, but i'd definitely look for a p90 equipped model!

aw man im totally sorry about that!
I've been doing my AP US History notes and i had a bunch of papers on my keyboard so i just hit mm and was done with it.
And about the p90, I was really thinking I'd add one in the neck spot, err a p94 but its close.
