GIBSON CUSTOM SHOP: CARVED TOP SERIES

GIBSON Byrdland (Custom Shop)

The original Byrdland model introduced in the 1950s was named after Nashville session guitarists Billy Byrd and Hank Garland. This model is a Gibson Custom Shop reissue. It has a reduced scale length (23 1/2”) and extra thin neck. (I'm guessing that Billy and Hank had small hands). The body style is archtop - but it is thinner than a typical archtop at 2.5 inches - and this helps reduce feedback. This model comes with either rounded Venetian cutaway or sharp Florentine cutaway.

The L-4 CES looks like the ES-175 but has a solid spruce carved top and solid mahogany back and sides.
