No Nut :D

The Orville is a gold sticker not an inlay
Tuners are wrong for a junior

What do I win?

I didn't think the Junior headstocks had any inlay at all? (I thought it was all screenprinted like the "Les Paul" logo).... correct me?

The shape of the headstock is wrong.

You mean the waist of it? How it is straight and not curved?

It looks OK to me, I'm thinking the angle the photo was taken has made the whole thing quite fore-shortened and top-heavy. (But yeah, no nut, no body, wrong tuners, horrible carpet!)

Then again, I'm no expert :lol:

I think this is the more common head shape on ObGs.

The reason I never liked them too much.

Even Gibson let a few 'oddballs' slip out the door. Maybe this is one of those Monday morning or Friday afternoon specials.
