Gibson Byrdland

1958 Gibson Electric Guitar and Amplifier Catalogue Page 6

Gibson 1958 electric guitars and amplifiers catalogue. Page 6. The archtops continue with the Gibson Byrdland guitar. The Byrdland was designed by jazz guitarists Hank Garland and Billy Byrd, and it could be considered as the first of the Gibson Artist series. This was a range of high-end jazz instruments, produced in very small numbers for discerning musicians, and launched in the early 1960s. These were very expensive guitars, but of a standard rarely seen elsewhere.

1958 zone 1 US prices: Byrdland $575 ($590 natural finish)
