    Is €600 for a vintage sunburst in really good condition a good price? I'm in no hurry, and I've seen other excellent MIJ going for around 500, but I don't know if the Orvilles are worth the extra...

    Cheers

    Orville or Orville by Gibson? If Orville, K series?

    K series, serial on the silver thing, it's an Orville.

    It's a decent price. It's not a huge steal or anything. But it's also not a rip off. That's nearly 800, and I actually paid 825 for a K-series sunburst Orville Standard in perfect condition. I also got rid of it within less than a year, though. It was better than my Greco, but it did not touch my Burnys. Solid. Good. Not all that exciting.

    I lost a really nice Burny with the "les paul" on the headstock for €500 for a few weeks... Every time I look at the dead ad I want to punch myself... Don't know how often they come here in Ireland...

    Which Burnys do you recommend going after?

    D'oh! That sucks, man. You will ride again, though, brother. Have faith.

    I have two early 80s RLC-60s, and they are unreal. I love the Burny customs, but my guess is that the Super Grades are gonna be bad ass, too.

    That Orville, IMO, is in the upper price range for a K Serial number. Even with free shipping. A Burny is a better bang for your buck for that money.
