    Very nice.

    It seems that Gerard is using a mini humbucker simular to Anderson's.

    His tops are looking great too.

    Nice work guys.

    Those shoreline golds are...wow. It's not just the color, it's knowing that there are quality guitars under that paint.

    They were sweet. The Cajun Gentleman was amazing, but the redwood top P90 artist SLAYED me.

    I just noticed that the Redwood P90 is a 1 piece top. Very nice.

    Gerard make a high quality guitar.

    Nice pickup selection Gerard.

    Oh, I was at Mr. Melancon's booth and played all the guitars there. Killers all.

    Man I love his work. Just the perfect combination of craftmanship and utility. I love my Mel's for sure. :D

    Those are indeed Anderson minibuckers. Based purely on looks, my favorites are the Cajun Custom and the Classic T with the f-hole........love the f-hole pattern!

    Holy cr_p look who came out of the wood works!
    Brian I miss ya buddy.
    I hope that all is well.

    Let's face it guys, Melancon guitars are among the best. Under rated in my opinion. Its nice to see Gerard experiment with different pickups.

    If you haven't played a Melancon, you owe it to yourself to try one at your local dealer.
