For your consideration, Garrett Park Guitars presents this 1968 Gibson Byrdland with a Natural finish.

This is a truly beautiful vintage Gibson with an interesting history. The Byrdland was 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 is thinner than the L-5's overall depth. Gibson's president, Ted McCarty, sought opinions and ideas about new products. The suggestions from ace session guitarists Hank Garland and Billy Byrd led to the development of the Byrdland. 

This vintage all original guitar is in excellent condition. Highlights include a beautiful natural finish, mother of pearl fret inlays and bound tortoise shell raised pickguard. This is a fabulous looking and sounding guitar.
