Some people prefer the FujiGen OBG's and Orvilles and some prefer the Terada OBG's and Orvilles.
The Terada and FujiGen OBG's and Orvilles are built differently but they are all pretty good IMO.

The highest priced Terada made G serial OBG's like the LPS-QM
228,000 Yen (approx $2,280) Les Paul Standard Quilted Maple are probably the best of all the Orville by Gibsons but Terada sometimes did funny things for the lower priced OBG's and K Orvilles like 3 piece tops and medium tenons etc and FujiGen was more consistant for their lower priced OBG's and Orvilles such as all the FujiGen OBG's and Orvilles have a long tenon.
I'm not too sure about the Goldtop colour.
You are probably right about the colour.

Streak, crack, whatever... I pass. Just makes it that much harder to sell downstream.

Another TF member eventually purchased the Orville gold top & he thinks it's the bees knees

He didn't mention anything about there being any cracks .........................

I'm the 'other TF member' who bought this guitar, and the only crack involved is the one in my skull that opens up every time I just LOOK at this beauty! Bee's knees doesn't even come close to how much I dig it. Now, back to the search for an MIJ 335 clone....

None yet my friend, but you know me - I'm a patient guy. BTW, I've got a set of Duncan Antiquities on the way for the Orville. They'll go in w/the original rings which are now back in one piece.

Interesting thread. I've only owned one Orville (which I sold awhile back) but I do have a couple of OBG GTs: a '95 OBG GT '57LPR (chunky neck, fret-edge binding, ABR-1 and non-RW fretboard) and a '91 OBG GT '54 LP (P-90's, stoptail bridge). The colors on each one are a little different from the other (just like the original guitars they're replicating were from each other):


Are you saying the '95 has an ebony fretboard?

Great looking guitars btw .
