Orville by Gibson LP 59 reissue (EU)

Post by pylyo » Wed Jan 11, 2012 10:00 am

So, what we have here is a real classic. Orville by Gibson 59 reissue Les Paul. Long tenon, nitro finish, Gibson hardware and Gibson 57 Classic PUs, top woods... She is all original. More close to the real deal than the Gibson reissues are, many say. Plays like a dream and what is most amazing, sustains forever. Build quality is just top notch. There are no dings or scratches but it has light worn traces on finish, which make it look even hotter. You can see them on the finish but with your eyes closed you can't feel them, they are so thin. More or less MINT condition.
Original Orvile by Gibson hard case included!!!

Price: Best offer!

Here are some pics but I am not good at taking them, so you can just imagine how great she looks in person.

I'm interested in some trades too. Looking for some Parker Flys, Niteflys, telecasters or good 7 string guitars... Also Diezel amps, Axe Fx.

Ladys and gents, I just opened it for you and it is a real flame top. Pics in a few minutes... Which means price is going up. Sorry and tnx to all of you who PMed me to check it. I was too lazy to do that because I love the sound so never intended to change PUs, so she was never opened. But I assumed it could be a real flame, since it has subtle flame and not that usual veneer look...

Good luck with the sale!

Nice guitar, looks like a Terada but with the best top I have seen for an ObG.
Are you in the US?

This is another nice example that I am not able to see if there's a veneer over the maple or not... :oops:
Anyway that sale went to a nice direction Pylyo :wink: and I guess I can forget the case now :wink:

Check the flame on this one (1st and 3rd picture), going all the way down thru the maple in the cavity. This is one of the best examples I've seen to be honest. I think camera flash made it even more outstanding. And the seam is allined 100% too.
As goes for the hardcase, I'm sorry I can't part it from this guitar. But thanks anyway, for the interest.

There's no doubt that you are right and it is no veneer but what I want to say is that I have not the talent to see it even if you show me different guitars in reality - they all look the same for me.That's what I meant to say - my eyes are to weak perhaps.The advantage is that my Greco 1200 definetely with a veneer looks like a solid flamed maple to me :lol: so it is for me a 1800.But again - absolutely no doubts that yours is not veneered.And regarding the case I totally agree with you - don't separate case and guitar especially after you know that it is a very rare solid top that deserves the hardcase ! Good luck with the sale !
