1973 Gibson Byrdland Blonde
A gorgeous Blonde Byrdland. Flamed Maple back and sides, Solid Spruce Top, Venetian Cutaway, Rare Blonde Finish, Gold Hardware, NO Volute and Tortoiseshell pickguard. The guitar is in extra fine condition displaying very little play wear. The flame on this guitar is very attractive and really explodes in good light. The pickguard has typical crystallization but is intact. The wooden bridge base appears to be a possible replacement with original Gold patent number bridge in place. Dating this time period of Gibsons is a little difficult especially with the original canisters on the pots making pot dating unavailable. All specs are consistent with a 1972-1974 production date. There were only 74 Blonde Byrdlands shipped in this three year time period. Included is the clean original hardshell case. Priced well below a new Byrdland for this vintage beauty. OHSC $6000
