NGD: Orville by Gibson





Traded my Edwards Tele for this yesterday. Orville is/was Gibson's Japanese brand. Very light weight guitar. Turns out these were made in the FujiGenGakki plant using all Gibson parts except for the pickups.
The original owner put 57 Classics in it and felt it necessary to replace the pickguard and switch washer with some leopard stuff, replacements are already on the way.

Very cool. But I'd agree on the replacing of plastic parts.

Re: NGD: Orville by Gibson

So what do you think of it playability/sound wise?

Re: NGD: Orville by Gibson

Playability is great, very comfortable neck. Eventually I will probably refret it with some giant frets, but that isn't really necessary, just a preference. Sound wise, it's got 57 Classics so you can't go wrong.
