2014 Gibson Byrdland

The Gibson Byrdland features a unique blend of large and small; a full 17 inch wide body with a 2.5 inch depth, and a rather short 23.5 inch scale length that’s intended to allow players to grab big chords and play fast.

The Gibson Byrdland was originally a custom built version of the L-5 and based on suggestions made by Billy Byrd and Hank Garland, two prominent Nashville session players in the mid to late 1950’s (Hank Garland played on many Elvis and Roy Oribison sessions that produced hit records).

The Byrdland was the first ‘thinline’ body and has a 23.5″ scale length, so really ‘wide’ chord voicings are easier. In production since 1955, this is a 1975 example. It’s in great playing shape and it has been played.
