While new sonic landscapes were being explored by musicians in the 1950's, guitarists expressed an interest in a hollowbody that kept a familiar look and tone to it, but with a little twist to provide them with some new inspiration. With this in mind, Gibson consulted with Nashville session musicians Billy Byrd and Hank Garland to create the Gibson Byrdland, released in 1955.
This gorgeous instrument was crafted by the Gibson Custom Shop Crimson Division: luthiers who are the best of the best at what they do, working together to create true masterpieces. This Byrdland features a Florentine cutaway and a classic looking Vintage Sunburst finish. With its thinner 2-1/4" body depth and 23.5" scale length, the Byrdland is a comfortable joy to play, and topping the guitar off are gorgeous pieces of flamed maple for the body and neck, with a classy burst to the flame maple neck as well. The guitar is in overall excellent condition and includes the original case with certificate of authenticity.
Includes: Hardshell Case, Certificate of Authenticity
