Are you sure you pasted the correct link? That guitar doesn't look to need repairs and it's not a 59 RI Flametop.

If it was me, I wouldn't buy someone else's problem. I don't like the crack near the nut.

And, I don't like photoflames..


Keep your eyes open. They turn up often enough.
While you're waiting, use the time to educate yourself about what to look for in the Burny, Greco Orville, ObG, Tokai, etc.

one of the local guitar tech's would fix it for 100 usd. but i might just wait for another to pop up. on the other had if the guy is willing to come down a few hundred i might just get it. Anyone know about Edwards guitar? Seems like the great majority of Orvilles i find on Ebay are pretty high priced.

It's not a 59RI, and as such is overpriced for a basic Orville. The photoflame also looks crap. It's been on sale for over 4 months without anyone buying it, so I wouldn't bother. There is better to be had for less dollah.

Not worth it, OBG's are superior to Orville's.
Not to mention the one you're contemplating is busted.
Check classified section, I have beautiful OBG in minty shape currently for sale.

It's in the classified section on these forums.
I've sent you private message.
