My Garage Sale!!Here is my favorite "Made in Japan" electric guitars from 1988:
Early Orville by Gibson Les Paul Goldtop LP-1957 Reissue Model with 100% original parts!!
Yes, this goldtop with two Gibson USA Humbakers is good for any rock guitarists, especially Southern Rock Fans!! As you know, Orville by Gibson guitars, limited-released by Ex "Yamano Gakki (Tokyo Japan) from ca. 1988 to ca.1995 have been very collectable among Gibson Fans (not only Japanese, but worldwide now)I have been a second owner since the mid 1990s: I bought this guitar from my best music friend in Tokyo!
Original New price in 1988 was about $1200: for serious amature guitarists, but sold in Japan only!!
I have played it sometime; mostly he was stayed at my sofa: I played with it, watching TV at night.
So it was still very clean condition, although there are two plastic parts cracked and some minor scratches & tips.Condition:I would like to say "8/10 or 8.5/10": It has 100% original parts! I don't recomend it for serious its sounds are really great!! (Better than 1988 Gibson USA products??!!) NO issues except; Front Pickup cover & plugin jack plastic parts have been damaged by a pre-owner. (See It is very easy to get replacement parts at any online music stores. (Not expensive!) Body: original ANTIQUE GOLD color. No major damage! pretty Lightweight: about 7.5 It has some scratches, tips....but NO BAD-look Damage. I would like say "it looks like Vintage 1957 Gibson Les Paul, which Dickey Betts used.!"
Neck: NO Issues!! NO repairs including neck joints or etc.
FRETS: original frets are left about 80%. You will need to replace later (not right Fretboards are also OK!
Electric parts:Original two humbuker pickups by Gibson USA were Pots and other small electric parts were also all
Others parts: Pegs are original in Excelent. Bridge parts need to be polished!
Sounds: I had collected overmany Orville by Gibson guitars for 20 years, This Goldtop is very nice, because of lightweight and cool gold color finish!!
Case: Sorry, but come with an NON-original Tweed soft case in clean condition. (Please think that it is gift to you for packing protection purpose.Let me start listingl at $599 in AS IS condition.
I mean I accept NO RETURN and NO Refund.
because this is already about 25 years old. (Not NEW any more)
But I think this guiatr is still very KOOL!!!!I don't accepy any BUY IT NOW offers.
Please don't ask me such offers.I have loved this Orville by Gibson guitar, but I have to find a good new owner for it.
Any questions, please e-mail me free!
Thanks for your understanding again and good luck!!
