This Orville was produced in the renowned Terada factory in 1990, and features USA made Bill Lawrence humbuckers, which were produced from 1988 - 1990 for Gibsons USA lineup.
Professionally set-up by our techs, the neck is straight and the action is low with spot-on intonation. Superb playability.

The solid mahogany body has a two piece carved maple top and has a Cherry Sunburst gloss finish. The set mahogany neck is capped with a rosewood fingerboard and features pearloid inlays.

Chrome Gotoh Tune-O-Matic bridge and stop bar.

Two USA made Bill Lawrence humbuckers produce an amazing tone. 2 Volume and 2 Tone dials and a 3 way pickup selector. Internal electrics are all original and are working perfectly.

Cosmetically, this guitar is in excellent condition. Pretty impressive for a vintage 1990 Orville. 9.5/10 overall.

The rarity and esteem of vintage Orville by Gibsons combined with the Bill Lawrence humbuckers make this a truly special piece.
