The famous Rock music veteran and considered as one of the most underrated guitarists of all time, Ted Nugent posted a new Instagram photo on his verified and official social media account and praised Gibson Byrdland Blackie as the greatest sounding guitar ever.

Here is the long caption of the photo by Ted Nugent:

“Celebrate with me won’t you the greatest sounding guitars in the history of noize! Sonicbombast realmusiclovers meet my sweetheart Gibson Byrdland Blackie! The bitch beast doth scream!

Blackie, #7, is a 1961 Byrdland with a rare solid black finish.
The original Gibson PAF pickups were ruined by sweat and it now has Gibson Burstbuckers in it measuring 7.52k in the neck and 7.92k in the bridge.
A Gretsch strap knob is attached to the pickup toggle switch.
Dunlop strap locks hold the guitar securely while being played.

Grover tuners have been installed (the originals worn out long ago). The original ABR-1 bridge has been replaced with a Nashville style bridge.
The wooden base is permanently affixed to the guitar body with pins and glue.
It is strung with GHS Boomer guitar strings: 10, 12, 15, 26, 36, 46 and tuned a half step down.

The frets are low which allows for low, slinky action.
The pickups are raised so that they are nearly touching the strings.
A small 1/8″ hole was drilled near the input jack to allow sweat which drips in via the f-holes to drain out.”
