I think it is a 3 piece. Sold it so I can't check.
I have hade more but can't find pictures of them.
Now I have an Orville by Gibson. That is just enough.
The red greco that Polifemo owns was mine before.
Those Greco Juniors from the Mint Collectione years are nice light weights.

Hi Marcus!
Looks great! Is it a poly-finished version or the rare nitro-model? Looks damn?new! Chrome- or nickel hardware?

It's the limited run, nitro version. It is new and untouched, unplayed - still has plastic on it. One of those impulse buys - too good to pass up.

I'll have to look at it again regarding the hardware. I think it's nickel but I'm not sure.

Great pic. Really thin coat, sunken into the wood, as you can see on left side between P-90 and bridge in the light-reflection! Hardware looks like chrome.

Meanwhile I named my ORVILLE LP Junior 'SALSA PICANTE' ?cause of it?s hot, spicey & multi-variant sound. Here some new footage of SALSA PICANTE and a gorgeous TOKAI TJ-85 FCH ?08 Custom Shop, property of BigEd (BIG thanx!!!)

Really hard to say! The TOKAI is a rarity (custom-ordered by golfredo, only 12 made!). The color is much darker than the ORVILLE Jr., but I like it. Playability is nearly identical. Both guitars show a nice, strong (fat?) neck-profile. The ORVILLE has a 2pc-body, the TOKAI is made of 1 piece mahogany. Tone & Vol.-pots of the TOKAI are slightly offset, Ed noticed this accidentally. Both models are reliced by their owners, my Orville is a bit harder aged and needs to be 'fine-finished' these days. Emotionally I set my heart to my ORVILLE, but I don?t like to answer your question

I use area rugs behind most of my photos too... they do make a nice backdrop.

Tell me about the Princeton with the brown tolex.... old one? Reverb model?

It?s an all original 1961-model! Very nice sounding, not heavy, very clean. Belongs to BigEd, owner of the TOKAI Junior shown in the pics.
