Looks beautiful, I love Customs!
Do these usually compare well to Tokais?

Edit: It refuses to give me the link for some reason...Can't tag it.

Orvilles are good guitars, definetely on-par with Tokai, but you have to remember there are different grades of Orville's just as there are different grades of Tokai's.

Generally the ones that say "Orville by Gibson" on the headstock are the higher end models, and the 'K' Series Orvilles like this one are regarded as the low-end models. While still probably a very good guitar, but IMO a bit on the expensive side, about ?400 would be nearer the mark, saying that it does look in very good condition, so maybe I'm being a bit unfair
