Archtop-Electric & Acoustic1968 Gibson Byrdland

A nice example of a late '60s Byrdland, the thinline short-scale version of the L-5CES designed for Billy Byrd and Hank Garland, and subsequently popularized by Ted Nugent, particularly in variants with the sharp florentine cutaway such as this one, which comes in under the wire before Gibson switched to the rounded venetian cutaway in 1969. 17" wide, 23.5" scale length, two humbucking pickups, gold hardware, Kluson "Sealfast" tuners, "Custom" truss rod cover, solid spruce top, solid flamed maple back and sides, lovely tobacco sunburst finish, bound ebony fingerboard with pearl blocks, three-piece flamed maple neck, deluxe appointments throughout from the flowerpot peghead inlay to the multi-ply fingerboard and body binding to the gold "Byrdland" trapeze tailpiece. This one has a little patina but is otherwise clean, plays and sounds great, and is all-original. The pickguard is unfortunately a bit deteriorated but is included. Comes in its original hard case with "Gibson"badge complete with zippered case protector. Consigned at $6200
