Orville by Gibson Les Paul '57 Reissue
A great piece of guitar history! Orville guitars were produced under the watchful eye of Gibson in Japan in the 80's and 90's. These guitars were sold for the domestic Japanese market, as an attempt to try and combat the highly popular and successful copy market.
They were never sold outside of Japan and have gained a cult following; with good reason too as they are incredible instruments that could rival any American built Gibson.
Our '57 is an absolute weapon! Sporting a pair of Gibson '57 humbuckers and a jaw dropping Nitro Gold Top finish.

Our old ObG is in excellent condition for a guitar of this vintage. There's a couple of marks here and there (pictured) but nothing unsightly. A screw has been snapped in the control cavity and would require drilling out, but the plate sits fine on 3 screws.
