Orville by gibson Les Paul Custom LPC-75.
this is a great vintage orville les paul custom that plays and sounds fantastic- definatly diferent.
Made exclusively for the Japanese market and rarely seen outside its country of origin, this Orville is an official Gibson licensed guitar as result of a partnership between Gibson USA and their Japanese distributor Yamano Gakki.
Made in the Terada factory in Japan 1991, this Orville is an impressive instrument with PAF-style pickups, a carved maple top, and solid, non-weight relieved mahogany body and neck.it has been setup with comfortable action and smooth playability.
please take time to read text and view pics in full. thank you.
The paul is in overall Very Good condition for its year, it has been played as should be with passion and not hung on a wall. it has some age related player wear ie- minor surface dints to the front and sides. the back again has paint scratches,swirls and dints which are a little heavier than the front. as we all know the back of any guitar tends to show most player wear (see last pic).
body and neck binding is clean and has aged beutifully with no visible faults.
the neck is clean and smooth to play. headstock has no faults or repairs.the frets have been recently crowned and polished and have no visible string grooves.tuners work as should. new gibson bone top nut has been fitted as old one was not to good. new strings and set up has also been done.guitar comes with soft padded gig bag.
all electrics work as should-new cts pots and vintage speed knobs have been fitted as old one were at the end of thier life.other than this the paul is all original except maybe the truss rod cover !!.
i have given what i feel is an honest appraisal as best i can so you know what is on offer. any questions please mail me. however please dont get to technical as i am not an aficionado on Orville guitars.but i always listed to the more informed.
guitar can be collected or will be sent via 3-5 day tracked courier in strong purpose made double wall box with fragile tape on outer.
