Has anyone noticed the quilted OBG LPS currently on ebay? I have never seen an OBG with that kind of neck joint. Can anyone shed some light? I dont want to post the listing as I am not sure how the seller would appreciate it...

Just post and don't worry , we all do it , easier to reply with pics. Not all OBG's had a long neck tenon, i had a wine red one without the tenon and she was a beauty...

It's all simply explained. Terada made all the OBG's from 1988 up to mid/late 1992 and also the K Orvilles from 1989 up till 1993 and all of them have 3 different types of tenon. Long, long medium and medium. Fujigen came along and started making OBG's in mid/late 1992 and they took over making Orvilles from Terada in 1993 which is when the K Orvilles end and all the Fujigen ones have long tenons. Different guitar factories make guitars in slightly different ways. Quite a lot of the early Terada made OBG's do not have long tenons.

Thats a Terada made OBG, very nice colour and grain on that one, if you posted the link to the auction we could advise you on the price they are asking..
Why the Mark, these are still nice guitars ...
