Overview

The Byrdland was designed by Gibson with Billy Byrd and Hank Garland (the model name being a portmanteau of their last names). This guitar is similar to the L-5CES but with a thinner body and shorter scale. At the end of 1957, the Byrdland was graced with PAF humbuckers (replaced by Patent number humbuckers in 1962). In late 1960, the designed changed from a curved Florentine cutaway to a sharp Venetian cutaway. Later models and reissues have been made with either cutaway style.

Body Style: Hollowbody single cutaway

Years of Production: 1955 - 1985
