Just wondering if anyone around here knows where I can get Byrdland build ( besides Gibson) after having looked around a lot, I thought getting one made may be easier than finding what I want.

Shoot a PM if you can think of someone,

Thanks!!

Would you be wanting that with "solid" wood top and back? As in, carved spruce top and carved maple back?

Asking because it'll be easier to find someone who can carve the top and back than to find someone who can do them in pressed maple plywood.

I THINK that the Gibson Byrdlands have pressed ply backs. The tops are carved spruce.

I'm not offering to build that. Probably I could but I'm in no position to start up another project and won't be for quite some time.

Hi, yes, carved, I think the older ones are carved 100% but not sure, I did find that in '17 they apparently went to pressed methods for tops, almost no info out there on it, a new pressed method was done. trying to get the old style build, sharp cutaway, exact dimensions. Thanks again
