1960 GibsonByrdland – Sunburst

Who doesn’t love a minty, (and flamey!) 1960 Gibson Byrdland in its original Sunburst finish?! The Byrdland was Gibson’s attempt at making a more streamlined version of the L-5, but in a smaller package. With the help and input from Hank Garland and Billy Byrd, the Byrdland was born. This exact instrument is in excellent condition, with the finish barely showing its age. The slim neck and shorter scale length certainly make for an unencumbered playing experience!
