is it legit Orville gold top?
I can see the outline of a wing on the right hand side. Sometimes the wood grain blends nicely. Another pic to be sure but everything else looks good, headstock inlay, colour, serial number font ect... You won't find a lot of Orville fakes around so I doubt that's one of them.
Ok thanks a lot man! Is it worth for $750.00 prize? Anybody can tell if its a long tenon? The guitar is not in my possession the seller just send me the pics.
Well from the prices I've seen lately, that price seems reasonable. And yes, it'll have a long tenon. All the Fujigen made Orville's and ObG's had the same basic construction.
They don't show up that often....
This one caught my eye, not a fan of flame tops but this one is so subtle it changed my mind still an hour to pick it up around 72,000
That one solid or veneer?
Just in case anybody was going to place a bid on this and didn't get the translation.
Nicely checked, Gammy!
I am feeling dense here. I see an item description that says the guitar has no serial number, but one is plainly visible in the pics. Is it a fake Gibson serial number? If so I guess someone stamped it on there. Is the whole guitar a fake Orville or someone tried to pretend it was made in the US?
It's a fake Gibson number.
The Rinkya listing points out that it's made by "gisten", but also calls it Orville by Gibson, presumably hoping that we non-Japanese speakers will skate over the disclaimer as simply part of the mystery of Google Translate.
I noticed the headstock inlay or binding didn't look right. Quick look at the serial number told the truth.
That bridge should be a big red flag at a glance, that headstock is awful though. Looks like they've now decided to release the fake chbsons with ObG headstocks as that looks like it's been factory done not added later. Serials are the same on all those chinese Kiss fakes.
Be interesting to see how much it goes for cos the price will show if the Japanese know it's a fake and are still happy to buy them.
Or that some unwary foreigner has fallen for the scam.
I've just followed rthe link again - bidding finished at $1,980.95, still well short of the $2,266.67 buyout price. Someone clearly fell for it (18 bids).
For which guitar? The fake?
Oops! Somehow I clicked on the wrong link.
Feel free to throw eggs, rotten vegetables etc at me, while I write out a thousand times: "Check before posting."
In other news, the fake (definitely the fake this time) has had a third bid.
I was thinking it was for the FM model? That's probably worth a couple of grand. They're so fucking scarce. Anybody else see the AW 57B yet? I think it's the first I've seen.
Yep. That's the one.
Sorry - it won't (fingers crossed) happen again.
