Gibson Byrdland Burgundy red Custom shop 2010

In a time when new music genres were being explored by musicians in the 1950's, there was a profound interest in a hollowbody that had familiar look and tone, but with a little twist to give them some new inspiration. This resulted in Gibson consulting with Nashville session musicians Billy Byrd and Hank Garland to create the Gibson Byrdland, and it was finally released in 1955. The Byrdland still had the traditional carved solid-spruce arched top and big 17" body like its predecessor the L-5CES, but was quite a bit thinner, at only 57mm deep. The Gibson Byrdland was also made with a shorter scale length, but still boasted all the luxury features of the top-of-the-line Gibson archtop guitars. With the Byrdland’s thin neck and 622mm scale some might have seen it as a “student model” model, but it was entirely done for added speed and playing ease. Its five-ply binding, ebony fingerboard with pearl block inlay, gold-plated hardware, and triple-loop Byrdland trapeze tailpiece also meant you could not mistake it for a student model. In 1955 the Byrdland was equiped with Alnico V single-coil pickups, But in 1957 the Byrdland was upgraded to PAF humbucking pickups and that is the incarnation which remains the most popular. Together with the traditional independent volume and tone controls and a three-way selector switch, these pickups gave the Byrdland the ability to go from a smooth mellow tone to a hot, piercing twang.
