Persons looking for this product


This is a very rare 1991 Gibson Byrdland  cutaway Master Model,

This Gibson Byrdland Venetian is in very nice clean and original condition, with very little wear. I imported and sold this instrument to its first and only owner in the early 1990's and I am proud to have it here at Motomusic for sale again.

Some minor fret wear and tarnishing on the Gold hardware as to be expected given its age. But overall in excellent condition for the year and with a really nice setup.
Assembled, voiced and signed on June 27th, 1991 by Jim Triggs, one of the Gibson Nashville Custom Shop master builders. The top is hand-carved Sitka Spruce, paired with a hand-carved Flame Maple back and Flame Maple sides, both exceptional in every regard.
The neck is three pieces of Flame Maple connected by two layers of Black Walnut. The fingerboard, bridge base, and head plate are Ebony.

The block position markers and headstock inlays are Mother of Pearl. The Byrdland has always been a top-of-the-line model, so all the metal is gold plated, and multi-layer binding is applied to the top, back, neck and headstock. The F-holes get single-layer binding. The electronic layout is traditional Gibson, with a pair of humbucking pickups, a 3-way Switchcraft toggle, and individual volume and tone controls.

These instruments are few and far between, versatile and play really well.

The original Gibson brow hard shell case is included. It has a few minor scuffs as one would expect. The original Gibson manual is also included with the guitar.
