I'm in the process of selling my Orville 335. it is a lovely guitar but I'm thinning down the 335 collection to just my Epiphone Dot (my first proper guitar) and a mid 70's Ibanez ES-355 rebuild project (set neck, pretty rare). SO my Orville is going to going to a new owner soon.

The serial number situaiton is a little confusing, mostly because my brain is concentrating on my degree right now and the essay I should be doing!

Serial number is J602189.

If anyone would like to decode that for me, I'd be most grateful

From all the information that I've been able to glean out from various sources regarding Orvilles and OBGs in the past 15 years or so, the serial number you gave indicates it was manufactured in February 1996 at the Terada factory in Nagoya, Japan.

Thank you for that. I just wanted to make sure and get a second opinion.
