Here's a real beauty - from 2009, a very good condition Gibson Byrdland with rounded venetian cutaway.
A shorter scale guitar on a full width but thinline archtop body, the Gibson Byrdland was originally a custom order for two Nashville session players, Billy Byrd and Hank Garland. Byrd and Garland wanted a session-quality guitar that made big chords and fast changes easier, and they got it. The design was so successful that it became a catalog item in 1955.
The Byrdland has a carved spruce top, and 2 1/4 inch wide thin flame maple sides and a carved flame maple back. The neck is maple with ebony for the fingerboard, headplate and bridge base. The hardware is gold plated; the
This instrument is in extremely good condition, as is its original case. There are no dings, and no visible fretwear.
