Just got my 59 RI today. It's a 1993 Fujigen. It sounds GREAT; I love the 57 Classics.

Thanks Mojo. Now I just need to find a set of tall pickup rings for her. It's too bad OBG's don't come standard with tall rings like Tokai's do. Right now it seems like every place is sold out of Gibson Historic spec tall rings. There are DMC and Fatboy etc but they want hundreds of dollars for them! Anyone know where these can be found? The neck should be 1/4" tall and the bridge should be 1/2" tall.

somone from here pulled the trigger on the Orville RI? I'd love to know if that is a veneer or a solid top.

Well I emailed the store and so did Villager...he told Villager it was a veneer but he assured me they checked and it was a solid flame top so who knows...I wanted to buy it outside of Rinkya etc (the fees are ridiculous) but someone nabbed it before he got back to me.

Dimarzio makes the tall pickup rings, Alot of people use them as cheap alternatives to DMC,Vintage Clone, They come in white or cream. Most get the white and then age them themselves.

Can someone please help me understand something? In comparing the LPS-59R and LPS-57C "reissues", the only differences I can see between the two is that the LPS-59R does not have a pickguard and it cost 15,000 yen more than the LPS-57C when new in 1993. Are there other differences that I haven't been able to glean from the forum topics? Forgive me if I've missed the obvious.

As the number says is the 57 a reissue of a 57 Les Paul while the 59 is a 59 burst reissue.There was no burst top available in 57 what means that the 57LPC has a plaintop.The 59RI has a flametop and in most cases it is a thin veneer laminated over the maple top.A few have a solid flame top but they are pretty rare.As you said the other specs are similar like fret edge binding and the 57 classic pus.But normally both come with a pickguard and only a handful without a pickguard and a pickguard hole.I never had a 57 so I cannot say what the neck is like but if you are interested ask villager who knows all the specs at

You can find some fine OBGs on his site too

I have had a bunch of 57ri's.
Both
GT's and Customs.
usually two piece backs with two piece tops (maple on GTs and Mahogany on Custom). Sometimes 3 piece backs on either model and 3 piece backs on customs.

Did OBG 59' model (57C &59R) have OEM Japan's bridge or Gibson ABR-1 bridge?
Thanks,
