The Gibson Electric Guitar is probably one of the most recognizable guitars in the world. It has been the top choice for guitar players since its creation and remains a firm favorite today. However, if you have never owned one, or maybe haven't played it much, there are some things that you might want to know before purchasing one.
The first guitar that many people might associate with the byrdland guitar brand would be the "Boyd Martin" model. The name of the model comes from the names of both guitarists who made it - Billy Byrd and Hank Garland - but it is generally considered to be a solid body guitar. The name "Byrd" actually comes from the shop where the guitars were originally constructed, hence the name.
Before the advent of the "Byrd" model, the original model was known as the "castersucker". One of the earliest versions of the byrdland guitar, the "castersucker" was made with a single-piece neck and featured elaborate sound holes that allow the player to experiment with the sound produced. Some models were fitted with the popular "cassette" headstock. Many vintage guitar players prefer the byrdland guitars with the "cassette" headstock, because it produces much cleaner sounds. Another advantage of the single-piece neck is that it is easier to repair scratches on the guitar neck.
The second guitar that many players consider popular is the "Byrdland Electric" guitar. The "Byrdland Electric" was actually the forerunner of the "castersucker". In addition to the simple single-piece neck, it also featured a metal ferrato on top of its single-coil pickup. The famous "Byrdland Guitar" logo was designed by replacing the standard pickguard with what is known as a "humbuck" with a humbucker at the bridge. Due to the unique design, the "Byrdland guitar" became quite popular with players like Jimi Hendrix and Eddie Van Halen. In the early hours of the morning, famous guitarists like Eddie Van Halen and Steve Vai would show up at what is now known as "The Byrdland Guitar Club" to play an impromptu gig.
The latest model in this line is known as the "Byrdland Electric Single Coils". These guitars feature a ferrato-style single coil pickup and a shorter scale length. Due to the short scale length, they can easily be fitted into the tightest spots, thanks to the "shorty chip" that is mounted on the bridge. Many byrdland guitar players prefer the single-coil pickups for their crisp, clean sound.
One of the hottest styles of today's electric guitars is the custom sized byrdland. This model features a cutaway body and the typical Byrdland curvature that most models share. The main difference is the use of a two-pronged pickup configuration. Unlike the regular B-block or alder body style, the double byrdland pickup produces a whammy effect when used in conjunction with a regular humbucker. Many guitar players prefer the extra output from these types of pickups because they are able to use the whammy effect when other types of single coiling pickup options are not available.
