Treat it as an altered chord and use the altered scale:

G altered scale - G Ab Bb B Db Eb F (G)

The altered scale is the mode which starts on the 7th step of the melodic minor scale, so in other words - the notes of G altered scale are the same as those of Ab melodic minor scale :)

The 7th arpeggios will come in useful:

Cm7 - C Eb G Bb

Fm7 - F Ab C Eb

Ab7 - Ab C Eb Gb

G7 - G B D F

Dm7b5 - D F Ab C
