does "orville by gibson" only differ from "orville" because of the electronics (pickups and wiring) and the nitro finish? Is everything else the same, like woods, construction and hardware? I'm talking about 59 style models...
Also do "orvilles" have long tenon?
And are their necks 60 thin, 58 fat or the 59 "in between"?

thanks

"Orville by Gibson" means that the guitars have original Gibson pick ups.
Otherwise they're the same.

The do have a long tenon.

There's one thing I forgot to ask: Do they all come with the long neck tenon, even the standards or just the (58/59 type ones)?

Plus can you give info on the neck, wether it's fat or slim?

thanks once more

So far I've only seen long tenon guitars.

The neck is a really good "in between" shape. Not too fat.
I like it a lot.
