When the Byrdland guitar was unleashed on the music playing public in 1955, its revolutionary design and boisterous tone became a huge hit quickly with musically-adventurous guitarists of the day. Essentially, the Byrdland guitar was a thinner, custom-built version of the L-5CES (albeit with a shorter, 23 ½" scale neck). By the late 50s, Gibson began making Byrdland guitars with a Venetian cutaway. Today, the Gibson Custom Shop employs their top luthiers to re-capture everything that made the original Byrdland guitars so sought after in rock'n'roll's heyday, and both Venetian and Florentine cutaway styles can be found in this catalog.

Any one of the Byrdland guitars in this section would make an exceptional addition to a guitar connoisseur's collection. In fact, the Gibson Custom 2015 Byrdland Guitar is a top-rated item and it's easy to understand why. Boasting a cutaway body with Bound "F"-hole, a vintage sunburst color and gold hardware, what you have here is a near-perfect replica of the original, but improved with many upgraded electronics. It easily goes from a hot, cutting twang to a smooth mellow purr thanks to the '57 Classic humbucking pickups, while its super-thin neck is ideal for fast players. From blues to jazz to rock, the 2015 Byrdland Guitar can handle it all with ease.

Or, if you prefer a Florentine cutaway style, look no further than the Gibson Custom 2015 Byrdland Florentine Hollowbody Electric Guitar. This big and bold hollowbody comes in your choice of natural gold or vintage sunburst gold hardware, features a multi-ply bound pickguard, sculpted fingerboard and a pair of Gibson's popular '57 Classic humbucking pickups. Like the model mentioned before it, this masterpiece will be hard to put down once you start playing it.

And remember, each Byrdland comes with a Custom Shop case and a Certificate of Authenticity. Whether you're a stage veteran or an avid collector who is dedicated to all things Gibson, these Byrdland guitars are everything you'd expect and more from the Gibson Custom Shop.
