Cool...that is rare.

You know what else seems to be rare...the ObG's with P90's....(gold top preferably) They never seem to come up on yahoo. Or at least when I'm watching.....and I watch quite a bit.

One piece back

Post by Joop » Fri Jul 31, 2009 3:55 am

Hi Villlager,

I believe that my ObG has a one piece back, but is there a way to be sure. On my Orville I can see it has a two piece back because of the change in wood grain, but I just can't spot that on my ObG. Is there another way to check?

Nice example you have there btw!

clean the edge properly the look all around the edge for a seam, in good light..

then inspect the PU cavities...

usually the seam shows somewhere on the edge though...
