Gibson Byrdland Thinline Archtop with Venetian Cutaway Sunburst, 1975

Gibson Byrdland Thinline Archtop with Venetian Cutaway Sunburst, 1975

This Gibson Byrdland dates to 1974 and was built at the Gibson Nashville plant, and carries the Venetian cutaway. It is in overall good condition though the original case and pickguard are gone. This guitar has been used as intended, so it has some wear, dings and dents. The finish has some natural checking, and fingernail marks around the treble volume control. The frets are fairly low but still playable. The electronics and hardware other than the volume / tone knobs are original. The tuners are gold-plated Grover Imperials with metal tulip shaped buttons, and of course the engraved Byrdland tailpiece is there.

Gibson Byrdland Thinline Archtop Electric Natural, 1991

Gibson Byrdland Thinline Archtop Electric Natural, 1991

The Gibson Byrdland thinline archtop electric appeared in 1955 and represents a functional adaptation to traditional archtop electrics. Two top Nashville session players, Billy Byrd and Hank Garland were approached by the Gibson president, Ted McCarty for ideas on new products. As busy players, Byrd and Garland wanted a shorter scale length of 23.5 inches to allow complex, extended chord shapes.

SOLD!!! Gibson Les Paul Standard 59 Reissue Cherry Burst, 1992

SOLD!!! Gibson Les Paul Standard 59 Reissue Cherry Burst, 1992

One of the iconic American guitars, the 1959 Gibson Les Paul Standard was ahead of its time – it was not popular when it was originally produced but is very highly prized now. The classic single cutaway, arched flame maple top is perfectly suited to the shaded sunburst finish. In 1992, before establishing its Custom Shop, Gibson produced a series of Les Paul Standard reissues, re-creations of the 1959 production. These guitars predate the ‘R’ series reissues. This very nice ’59 reissue bears a mix of 1959 and 1960 specs – a 1960 style cherry sunburst, knobs and neck profile that’s a bit thinner than a 50’s model, and 50’s style dished-carve top.
