Litt historie om denne gitarmodellen er vel på sin plass.

Her er et utklipp fra wikipedia:

The Byrdland is the first of Gibson's Thinline series. Many guitarists did not desire the bulk of a traditional archtop guitar such as Gibson's L-5, one of Gibson's top models. The Byrdland, with its overall depth of 2¼-in, is thinner than the L-5's 3⅜" depth. Gibson's president, Ted McCarty, sought opinions and ideas about new products. The suggestions from Byrd and Garland led to the development of the Byrdland. The Byrdland, first made in 1955, is essentially a custom-built, thinner, L-5CES (Cutaway-Electric-Spanish). Later, the two specified a shorter scale and narrower-than-standard neck. Guitarists who had an opportunity to play Gibson samples liked the Byrdland's short scale neck (23½"), which facilitated intricate single-note patterns and unusual stretched chord voicings.

Hvilepuls. Jeg får litt vondt i estetikken av avstanden mellom pickupene på Byrdland-modellen, grunnet den kortere skalalengden. Ser rart ut. Såpass at jeg driter hardt i om gitaren er aldri så god. :D 

L-4 CES, derimot, snadder!

Hjelper med P90er👍
