    But I'm not quite sure what year it is. A friend sold it to me, but they don't have any information on it either. It doesn't look very old, but it's similar to the 50's and 60's models. Any help?

    It looks like a Les Paul, but it's pointed on both sides.

    So it's a Melody Maker? Semi-SG shaped? DC LP shaped? Juniors have one pickup. Specials have two. Melody Makers came in both configurations.
