yes its a good one .. I hope
Help me identify this Orville by Gibson. Are the pickups original? I thought it hey would be Gibson but I there was no PAT PENDING or number.
could have been the sticker type gibson pups that have fallen off
I understood the stickered 57 Classics only came on the re-issues which that one isn't, the other pups they used were the Bill Lawrence on the earlier ObG's and Gibson 490's on later ones which have the pat pending on the pups. Does it look like the pups have been changed by the solder on the pots in the cavity?
Ah thanks for this my OBG came with 490's and I have a set,
of the lawrence ones to.. wondered where the 57s fitted in...
I just bought an Orville LPC John Sykes, looks all original in very nice clean condition. 1997 yom, Long tenon, ebony fretboard, no fret end binding, polyurethane finish?
Should arrive in about a week. Ill likely replace the chrome bits with historic type black plastic parts.
I don't know, would this be all mahogany, or maple cap ? Supposed to weigh 4.1kg
Good call on replacing the chrome plastics they are an aquired taste, decent guitar though fujigen made, maple cap and ebony board. Pups might be a bit ropey but the build quality of the body is the main thing and all the fujigen Orvilles/Epiphones I've had Id put up against a gibson any day.
I have a nice wiring harness & a couple sets of pickups, well see how it sounds & go from there. Definitely a maple cap on these ?
Yes, maple cap
Right on, thanks !
Indeed, my last three were by sea, much cheaper, no duties and no damage.
My Orville Sykes is a 1997, haven't pulled it apart yet.
Does anyone know definitively if the hardware/pickup rings/ etc is compatible with Gibson Historic parts ?
PS: Best top carve I've ever owned, (including Historic) on this Orville !
Have a look at what top is on it? Maple of mahogany?
That is a diplomatic way of putting it....
What do you mean exactly by "ropey"?
One really bad fret, worn down very low ,theres a few others close to this one.
Seller "had no idea" & wants guitar back,(his idea, not mine) & wants me to pay to return it.
Another sh*thead on Flebay
Well its solid black...but I do see 2 seams, so 3 piece top.
Havent pulled the pickups yet, but heres an image from the listing.
I have owned WCR's & Bareknuckles (in historics) & these stock? pickups sound pretty good.
I've been offered to trade in an epiphone les paul standard + 300 USD for this guitar, is it fair deal?
Could you please help me to identify this guitar? Owner told me that its a fujigen made guitar from 1988-89 with gotoh tuners and japanesse paf clone pickups.
I think that one has been seen before and it looks nothing like a Fujigen-made Orville.
Fujigen didn't make Orvilles until 1992.
It looks more like a rebranded Korean-made Epiphone. Stay away would be my advice, it looks like a fake Orville.
