A Short-scale Gibson HollowbodyYou'll invoke incredibly rich tone from the Gibson Custom Byrdland hollowbody electric guitar. Gibson's Byrdland hollowbody guitars are a favorite with jazz guitarists, although the Byrdland's playability and tone are loved in many styles including rock. This Byrdland hollowbody tops a maple back and sides with a spruce top, for wonderfully vibrant tones with good definition. Also setting this Byrdland apart from the normal fare is the rounded Venetian cutaway, which creates a smooth look while allowing you easy access to the upper-fretboard. Factor in the maple/walnut neck, a pair of '57 Classic humbucking pickups, and a short-scale length, and you've got an amazingly playable performer in the Gibson Custom Byrdland hollowbody electric guitar.
