Orville by Gibson Thunderbird
An iconic thumper. The reverse Thunderbird is an iconic bass guitar for rock 'n' roll, sporting vicious looks and a fat and powerful sound from its twin humbucking pickups.
Built in Japan under licence from Gibson in the late 80's and early 90's, these Orville's are excellent instruments, built with the upmost care and attention to detail. Only sold domestically in Japan and rarely seen in the UK!

Our old T-Bird is in very good condition for a bass of this vintage. There's some light marks here and there (pictured) but it wears them very well! Lacquer crack at the top of the neck (pictured) this is just in the clear coat and not a break. Freshly set up with Daddario 45's and ready to go!
