Hi,

I was wondering about if it is possible to insert a humbucker in to the Gibson melody maker?
#2
It might leave a hole, cos a P-90 pickup is wider than your average humbucker...you'd have to fill it and re-finish the gutiar so that you can't see it.

Are you planning to BUY a melody maker, or do you have one already?
#3
I'm planning to buy one, and also, I thought that it only was like a single coil in there and not a p-90.
#4
A P-90 is actually a single coil. Just a really BIG one.

And don't buy the guitar. It sucks. You're just paying for the fact that it says "Gibson" on the headstock. It's not a good guitar unless you want to show it off.

Buy a Schecter, Ibanez or ESP/LTD instead. Or a Epiphone Elitist. They're in the same price range, but have better features and are better built.
#5
I know what a P-90 is, I am just saying that it looks lika an ordinary single coil pickup on the pictures.
#6


That is a single coil. The older versions had a p-90.
Like this one.

The two links are the same, but yes those are single coils.
I think that it sounds sweet though...
#8
Yeah, I forgot to copy the new link, but now the links are replaced with pictures.

What would you guys recommend: The Fender standard Stratocaster Or the Gibson melody maker (and I am also thinking about the melody maker with two pickups)?

#12
there are bareknucke P90s that fit in a humbucker cavity but its expensive
#13
But, would it be possible to actually put in a humbucker on the melody maker that Will has put a picture of (the picture of the sunburst guitar)?
#14
It would, but you'd either A) have to route out more wood, or B) get a single sized humbucker.
