    I do not know and am not affiliated in any way with the sellers for these Craigslist ads.
    However, I thought it might be worth a look for any forum members that might potentially have an interest in these kinds of instruments.

    Nice guitars but I need a Wes L5 or an L5c. Not horrible on the prices and not on reverb.

    What’s most interesting about Billy Byrd’s relationship with the Gibson Byrdland is that his last (and apparently favorite) one was the double cut version with a 24 3/4” scale that was made for him and on display at the Country Music Hall of Fame years ago. It may even still be there.

    I have an old record where he plays electric, single note style ala Christian

    I found that odd, too. Billy Byrd was guitarist for Ernest Tubb in addition to playing many sessions and also played
    in dance bands prior to playing country.
