For your consideration, Garrett Park Guitars presents this 1965 Gibson Melody Maker double cutaway with cherry red finish.

The Gibson Melody Maker Double Cut appeared in 1961, and features a thin Mahogany slab body, Mahogany neck, and Rosewood fingerboard. The hardware includes Kluson Deluxe tuners with creme plastic buttons, a stop-bar wraparound bridge/tailpiece, and electronics mounted entirely on the pickguard. The neck features a 1.66 inch nut, with a wide and flat fingerboard for fast traveling on the neck. The pickups and controls are clear and crisp.

Cosmetically, this guitar has a smooth and shiny finish with a curious mar on the back of the body where some fabric appears to have been in contact with the finish during the application process or in a very hot car (looks a bit like a seatbelt). It doesn't break the finish and barely shows up in pictures.
