and the text...

specification Body style: Double cutter way Scale: 24 9/16"=624mm neck: AFURIKAN mahogany Fingerboard: EBONI radius: 12"=304.8mm body top: Frame MEIPURU lamination body back : AFURIKAN mahogany pickup : ham BAKKINGU / '59 ARUNIKO peg : Goto"Magnum Lock" Bridge : Gotoh/GE104B tail piece : Gotoh/GE101Z color: Transformer gold, indigo, TIRU green, transformer red, transformer black Finish: 極薄 lacquer


I have one by this maker but mine is Honduras mahogany. They began using African mahogany a couple of years ago and the prices dropped a little. Fewer inlays on the newer ones as well. I like mine so much I sold the Gibson LP after I bought it. The one in the pic looks nice too...

Wow, those Ornetts do look very nice.
Good features as well.
Actual lacquer finishes.

Nice find, sneaky.

Does Ornetts have an actual website?
