Hi, is with this Orville everything ok ? The "by gibson" seems to be different , for what i've seen in other Orville by gibson guitars.

Hi,

You got the guitar, and you're happy with it. That is the most important thing. Congratulations!

What surprises me is that the "b" of the by gibson seems to be closed, which is IMHO the correct "fujigen" way, however the Gibson part is the usual wobbly logo of typical Terada guitars. I have never seen this before. Did I see that correctly?

Has anyone else ever came accross this before??

I gladly make room for the experts here... :o)

Cheers,

Joop

The "b" is open, not closed. It might be seen on the picture that is closed because of its poor quality ; )
