Orville by Gibson

This guitar is a Japanese guitar authorized by Gibson U.S.A. If it just had Orville on the head stock it would be all Japanese. Because it has Orville by Gibson it will have american pick-ups fitted.

The broken head stock was the result of a lovely trip on an aircraft.

Sadly some of the Finnish was broken away and had to be filled. This type of repair is a common problem with gibson and Epiphone type guitars due to the head stock angle and the grain of the wood, due to the fact the neck and head stock are made from one piece of wood.
