could you guys give me some infos about the necks?

I'd like a 60's style neck. what kind of variety can I find among O or OBG. and is there a way to tell from the serial number or other details?

do any OBG have ebony fretboards?

so are you telling me that gibson standard have short tenon?

the only problem is that the prices of OBG are almost as much as a used standard. I wish I woke up a few years earlier :D

and do both reissue and standard OBG have more stable neck joint than a gibson? is what you say based on your personal experience?

orvilles vs gibson LP standard

so I am wondering what are the differences between a Gibson LP standard and an Orville/OBG.

The standard's have fret binding and it seems to me that Orville don't.

Also some Orville have 2 piece necks but I don't know if that's true for standards.

what else?

very interesting MIJvintage. That's a lot of good info. unfortunately deals are not found on ebay anymore, but I'll keep looking there and locally.

does anybody know which orvilles models have the slim 60's neck?

on that ebay auction you said yours it's in between.

thanks for those pics! and I understand that OBG can be recognized because it says so on the headstock. correct?

how are they comparable to tokai, greco and burny in terms of sound, sustain, warmth, low action?

are there OBG with slim 60 necks?
