I would stay away from it and go for a Epiphone Les Paul Custom instead. Crack is always a bad sign and Gibson Melody Maker isn't that good anyway.

Definitely stay away from that one. Chances are if theres a crack either side of the nut then its a fairly major problem.

If it's a melody maker, it's really cheap. He could get an Epi Standard, or a very good Agile (go to rondomusic.comFor agile)

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

I would say it depends on how repairable it is. But i have my doubts-

Guys... It's a Les Paul Junior. From the looks of it too, it's an old one.

I think it might just be the finish. It might just be aging.

I had a crack like that before on an old Gibby. It really didn't affect the guitar at all.

EDIT: Now that I think about it, the crack on mine wasn't at both ends. Be a bit careful.

Hmmm, it's at a pretty vunerable part of the guitar, I'd be wary.

It's either nothing at all or a huge problem.
My wager's on that it's a huge problem if it's on ebay.

I saw this guitar on eBay too. I think the listing mentioned that the crack doesn't need repairing at this time.

However a crack like that can get worse very quickly and render the guitar useless. It could then be repaired by a luthier but the cost of the repair may not be worth it unless you could DIY.

haha, the first few replies thought it was a Melody Maker.

I've seen cracks like those before, but people said that some were cracks in the finish, is that possible?
