Gibson Guitars has announced a Michael Clifford (the lead guitarist for 5 Seconds Of Summer) Signature Melody Maker in Jet Black Cherry.
Gibson says: ‘Over the course of multiple 5 Seconds Of Summer world tours, Michael Clifford and Gibson collaborated to develop his first-ever signature guitar. The Michael Clifford Signature Melody Maker rocks a double cutaway Melody Maker design for rock solid playability as well as a classic look. The body is crafted of swamp ash for resonant tonal characteristics and moderate weight while a rounded, maple neck profile provides incredible rigidity and sustain with a smooth and comfortable feel. The guitar features a black Richlite fingerboard and signature red acrylic “X” inlays for fast and effortless playability. The BurstBucker 3 Humbucker delivers a muscular PAF style voice in full humbucking mode and the push-pull volume control, the Kill Switch Toggle offers further tonal options and effects. The distinctive Jet Black Cherry finish completes Michael’s version of his signature guitar. The Michael Clifford Melody Maker is the perfect guitar for the player starting his first gig, to rocking out stadiums and everything in between’.
