Hi,

I was wondering if anyone would be able to help me identify the guitar in the video linked below. I'm sure you've all seen the video (Kiss by Prince) but I don't know enough to be sure about which guitar it is. My assumption is that it is an L5 but, to my untrained eyes, it could be a Byrdland or any other similar guitar. Is it possible to tell for sure?

It's a Byrdland. Her sleeve covering the tailpiece made it a bit harder to tell for certain, but... thin body, pickups closer together than on an L5, and it appears to say Byrdland on the truss rod cover. The only other possibility was an L5CT, but the pickups look too close together for that.

Thank you Jim!

I would never be able to pick up on the small details like that.
