ORVILLE/ORVILLE BY GIBSON
Guitars previously produced in Japan between the mid-1980s and early 1990s. Distributed in the Japanese market only.
Orville and Orville by Gibson guitars are actually Japanese-built guitars that Gibson licensed. Gibson signed a deal with Fuji Gen Gakki to build Gibson-approved copies in their Japanese factory and distribute them in the Japanese market. All guitars are exact copies of authentic Gibson instruments including Les Pauls, SGs, Flying Vs, Explorers, ES-335s, ES-175s, electric basses, as well as a line of acoustic guitars. Since these guitars were designed for Japanese distribution only, very few were imported into the U.S. market although more examples are showing up. Prices generally run between $800 and $1,200 on used instruments in excellent condition. Look for more information in further editions of the Blue Book of Electric Guitars.
