You'll see scarf joints on some of the K Orvilles
Whats a good/best fit HSCase for these Orvilles ?
I'm guessing the TKL 8825 ?
After getting an FGN NCLC 20 I am really jonsing for a '57 LPC style guitar and the ObG LPC57B seems to be a strong contender.
I have looked at a few listings but they seemed to be up there in terms of pricing. Whats a good price for one of these bad boys? The FGN is fantastic but the neck isn't as chunky as I would like it to be.
I use one of these from Long & McQuade. Can't say how well they travel though.
If you can get one for $1200 or $1300 would be a good price. Can't speak for the neck profile though, some say they're chunky but I didn't find either of my ObG Reissues to be as chunky as the Bacchus Classic Series.
LPC 57B with an ebony board and fret binding.. around 1000 pounds or 1300 USD .. if you can find one ....
although i wouldnt sell mine for 2000....
Darn, I was hoping they would be consistently chunky. After spending a lot of time with the 2016 Gibson LP Studio Fadeds I am a sucker for rounded 59 necks. My understanding was that the 57 RI was also chunky. Oh well saved me some trouble there.
Thanks for the Bacchus tip, don't mean to take the thread OT, but I really like the look of the BLC-57 after doing some digging, so I will follow up on that.
The one I found on ebay was pushing north of 3K Canadian.
That good huh?
Are the Non Reissue ObG LPC (w/ebony fretboards) as lauded as the RI counterparts?
Thanks just looked it up. Noticeable gap thats for sure. Comes to about 2K canadian. Not bad condition for playing around at home I suppose.
I just bought a 97 Orville Sykes, polyurethane finish, long tenon,ebony fretboard. 2pc back, 3pc top ('58+ earlier Gibson's uses 3PC tops often).
I've owned/own Gibson Historic & USA,& this Orville fit & finish is excellent. Extremely nice work on the inlays/binding. Fret nib binding isn't an issue for me,nor is the polyurethane finish. It's 20 years old so the finish is pretty thin.
Congrats! Would love to see some pics of it Sounds like a killer guitar!
Greetings, all! Fantastic thread here. New to the group so thought I'd chime in to say, thanks for all the great info you guys have posted on these fantastic guitars! Here are a couple of mine... The one with the quilt top is a 1997 Orville '57 Reissue and the second one (middle frame) is a '95 Orville by Gibson tobacco burst.
That Tobacco looks dynamite
FYI, I bought an older TKL Epiphone case, made in Canada. It's identical to a older USA case.
Fits my Orville like glove. Body is almost snug fit, neck rests on both supports, & nothing touches in headstock area.
In my experience, the Gibson USA "rounded 50's" neck is nowhere near as big as a historic neck. It is more of a rounded medium sized neck. Some might even say it is closer to what a true vintage neck feels like. I mention this to point out that a medium sized MIJ neck might feel perfect to you if you like the USA version of the rounded 50's neck.
Is this orville and serial a legit orville les paul? Thanks
Looks ok to me. Does that start with an 8?
Got any more pics?
Yes..More pics please
Yup its an 8, but look like doesnt have the winged headstock... here’s some more pics... tnx tnx
