Condition of Instrument

This Byrdland is in excellent condition with only a very small amount of play wear and fret wear. It looks very clean! No major dings, dents or scratches. The only thing to mention is the hardware has a touch of tarnishing. Includes the original hardshell case and COA.

Many working musicians of the fast-paced and musically adventurous ’50s required a new instrument — one that captured traditional Gibson archtop artistry and craftsmanship, but represented a redrawing of the blueprint for the needs of the day. Enter the Byrdland, released in 1955 after consultation with first-call Nashville session musicians Billy Byrd and Hank Garland. Outwardly every bit a Gibson, this model represented a handful of developments that were radical, even revolutionary, in its day.
