With a short production run between 1974 & 1979, the Gibson Marauder was designed to compete with the single coil pickup, bolt on neck Fender instruments dominating the market at the time. The Marauder was designed by Gibson and Bill Lawrence, and was an outlier in their product range at the time. This 1974 Gibson Marauder is a great example of first year model, and a unique and affordable way in to vintage Gibson guitars.
With an alder body & maple neck with Rosewood fretboard, the Marauder is fitted with a traditional humbucker pickup in the neck position, and the Bill Lawrence designed blade style humbucker in the bridge, angled to replicate the frequency response of Fender single coils. Each pickup is coated in a clear epoxy, and has a noticeably brighter sound with more clarity in the higher frequencies than other Gibson guitars.
This guitar is in very good, all original condition, with only minimal signs of play wear, and has been given a full service & appraisal by our luthiers at the Vintage Instrument Workshop. This guitar also includes a 3 year warranty.
