Gibson Byrdland 1975 (consignment) Sold

Gibson Byrdland 1975 (consignment) Sold

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.

Gibson SG Standard 1968 (consignment) SOLD

Gibson SG Standard 1968  (consignment)  SOLD

Gibson introduced what became the SG during 1961 as a Les Paul model. With the end of the Les Paul endorsement deal for this guitar, the guitars were renamed to SG, though this process didn’t end till 1963 when Gibson finally ran out of the ‘Les Paul’ branded parts! The first production models carried ‘PAF’ pickups and a unique (and quickly discontinued!) side-pull trem. Various configurations of pickups, pickguards, bridges and tailpieces followed.

The 1968 SG Standard featured a larger ‘batwing’ pickguard, two humbuckers, Kluson tuners and the Maestro Vibrola.

This example is in good playing condition but was repaired long ago.

Gibson SG Standard, 1974 (consignment) SOLD

The Gibson SG has been a workhorse since its introduction. Versatile and capable, it has been used in pretty much every style of music.

This 1974 example shows a fair amount of wear, which really means that the guitar has been used for its intended purpose and has proved it can really do the job!

Rickenbacker Model 325C64 JetGlo, 2011 (consignment) SOLD

Based closely on the 1964 model, the Rickenbacker 325C64 brings forth memories from anyone exposed to the ‘British Invasion’ – or the Ed Sullivan show! – in the early and mid 1960’s. This 2011 example is in good condition and is really interesting to play – and of course it has that sound. Complete with Accent vibrato tailpiece.
