Looks pretty sweet to this Canadian, but where in Canada are you ?? KC is a bit of a drift away from me and most of the rest of us, i take it they will ship to Canada but then you also have to add shipping and taxes as well. I'm no expert on Orville's or any other guitar for that matter but if it's a high end model i would think you'd still come out ahead. Comes with a nice case which is also a bonus and must be counted as well. Do you know how much it weighs ??? I've always heard the people on the forums like the Orville by Gibsons more and they command a higher price. I suppose the Phantom has already thought of such things though. Can you tell anything by the serial # ???

Did I miss something? It says 'Orville' on the headstock, not ObG.

Perhaps the Phantom knows?

Looks hot but an international Craigslist transaction long distance would have even me questioning my sanity
