This Gibson Custom Shop Byrdland is somewhat of an unusual guitar for me to stock – I recently traded it in against a new Collings i35LC – If I wanted to bide my time, I’d price it up for £5395 and wait a while for a potential sale, that might or might not involve a part exchange – However, as I have no other arch top models in stock, I wish to move it on quite quickly – As such it is offered for sale at cost price, in order to hopefully sell through nice and quickly – So £3599 is my price but no trade in option at this price – In short £3599 is the cash price, whilst I’d happily trade in many options at £5399

Few other key details 

Condition wise – It has been played only at home – Look hard at the gloss finish and you’ll find only very minor signs of use – Almost the odd superficial surface graze, but certainly nothing nasty – Some wear on the gold plated hardware, which is pretty much par for the course – Most wear is on the fancy tailpiece and I suspect most of this is from cleaning

Set-up – When I acquired the guitar and came to adjust the set-up, I thought it played okay, but nothing outstanding – Yet in part as it is a nice guitar and in part as I bumped into Steve Robinson (Manchester Guitar Tech) at a guitar show, I asked him to take a look at it – So a few days later when I picked it up, I can report that the play-ability has been vastly improved – Glad I went to the additional expense to sort this out

Pics – Sorry but the pics don’t really do the finish justice, in particular to much glare and reflections, but hopefully you’ll get the jist

Guitars4You Offers Reliability, Integrity and Expertise

Every guitar in stock at Guitars4You has been personally selected, inspected and approved by me, with particular attention paid to the set-up and playing performance – Every sale, phone call, mail order transaction or e-mail is handled my me – Mark Hopkin, the owner, Managing Director, cleaner and coffee maker (Jo, my wife helps with the coffee) – A journey, now in excess of 40 years, has fuelled my knowledge, experience, love, devotion and passion for exceptionally fine guitars – This reflects in every aspect of our business.

I have no desire to run an Amazon style 'click to buy' guitar shop, that lacks any soul or passion, or indeed to fill a showroom with a selection of dirty, shop soiled or dusty guitars that are in need of a set-up.
