I've seen contradictory reports on the net. It seems conclusive that the Orville by Gibsons are nitro...but are the Orvilles as well?

I worded my question poorly, I see. Sorry 'bout that.

So the Orville by Gibson ARE nitro whereas the Orville is poly?

Yes.
The nitro takes more time to do so the factory owners have to pay more in wages etc for nitro guitars so the selling price is higher and seeing that the Orville by Gibsons are the higher priced line they have nitro and the lower priced Orvilles have poly.
