Gibson Byrdland Archtop Electric Guitar, Vintage Sunburst (James Hutchins) (pre-owned)
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.
This model bears the signature of long time, and world-known Manager of the Archtop team at Gibson Custom, Jim Hutchins!
