1959 Gibson Byrdland Jazz Guitar

via this auction where you'll find more pics.

"Up for sale today is this awesome rare 1959-1960 Gibson Byrdland Guitar with PAF Pickups. The guitar overall is in excellent 100% original condition. Serial #A34xxx. The frets and fret board are in very good condition with plenty of life and play left. Pickups sound great and overall this guitar is a tone monster. The gold plating has worn on the pickup covers from normal play. I don't think you will find a nicer sounding or looking guitar for the money. If tone matters, don't miss out on this one. The sunburst body is in great original condition as can be seen in the pictures. Guitar has tons of vintage mojo and there are no major body/neck cracks or breaks. There is some shrinkage on the neck binding that has resulted in a couple of cracks. Please see pictures. Comes complete with original Gibson Hardshell case w/ key and original hangtag with matching serial #, directions for the bridge, pickups and directions for placing the bridge. The case is made by Lifton and features the famous pink interior. It is in solid condition but does have some duct tape around the edges..."
