We present an all original and 100% complete 1964 Gibson Byrdland in Sunburst finish. The Byrdland is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful guitars ever made.

This top-of-the-line Byrdland Florentine is in excellent shape for its age. It features carved spruce top reinforced with two parallel braces, solid maple back and sides, maple neck with a medium thick profile and ebony fretboard with inlaid pearl block position markers. The headstock has inlaid pearl “Gibson” logo and pearl flowerpot (“torch”) inlay. Two-layer (black on white) truss-rod cover with “Custom” engraved in white. Original individual Kluson Sealfast tuners with tulip-shaped metal buttons. The “patent-number” humbucker pickups are well balanced and sounds fantastic.The pickup covers is undisturbed. Gold plastic bell-shaped knobs with metal tops. ABR-1 Tune-O-Matic retainer bridge with nylon saddles on rosewood base and specific three-loop tailpiece with “Byrdland” engraved on the cross-bar.

Overall, the condition is excellent with light checking, nicks, dings and other cosmetic wear. Some tarnishing to the gold-plated hardware that gives it a very cool look. The original pickguard has shrunken and it’s common. The back, sides of the guitar and the back of the neck are nicely flamed. There is added some glued tape under the bridge so it doesn’t move when playing. Strap button is installed on the neck heal .

Pickups and the electronics/wiring are untouched and intact, with no broken solder joints, no re-wound pickups. All original and correct. 

Comes complete with its original hardshell case with yellow lining. Latches and handle are in perfect working order.

  • Scale length: 23 1/2 inches.
  • Nut width: Just under 1-11/16.
  • Neck pickup: 7.78 kOhm.
  • Bridge pickup: 8.30 kOhm.
  • Weight: 3.05 kilograms.
