Sold! Gibson Byrdland Thinline Archtop with Venetian Cutaway Sunburst, 1975

Sold!  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.

SOLD! Guild F412 Jumbo Maple 12-String Guitar Natural, 2013

SOLD!  Guild F412 Jumbo Maple 12-String Guitar Natural, 2013

The Guild F412 has been near the top of the line for 12 string guitars, with a jumbo body and a huge sound. The F-412 and its mate, the Guild F-512 mainly differ in woods used for the sides and back – the F412 uses flamed maple and the F512 Indian Rosewood. The F412 Maple version will tend to have a brighter sound with a tighter focus on the high end, while the F512 Rosewood will be warmer and focus in a slightly lower range.
This Guild F412 dates to 2013 and was built in New Haven, Connecticut. It’s in very good condition with little wear. It’s bright, clear and well defined. This is a guitar you can really dig into.
