I've had over 100 Orvilles and Orville by Gibsons and there were exceptional examples of both model types.
Get your hands on one and see for yourself ; ) Andrew Originally, I bought one of these in Japan when I was there and there was a little "Made in Korea" sticker under the silver serial number sticker.
If you want a Gibson guitar, and want it made right, then an Orville will do.
The standards to which these were held to were so conforming that I found most ofthese instruments to be carbon copies of Gibsons and also of themselves. This was not the case for Greco, Tokaiand Aria Pro II...
Here's a picture of Pumpkin that I took the day we met. I had to wait a few days to come up with all of the cash that I needed.
Other than the difference in headstock logo and pickups, there are noother hidden or outward differences that I am aware of.It was decided upon to use "Orville" as the new brand name, dedicating the brand to the founding father.As it was decided that someof these guitars would be equipped with Japanese-made pickups and some with USA-made pickups, they decided to include the post-script "by Gibson" for themodels that had pickups of American origin.Named after the founding father of Gibson guitars, Orville H.Gibson, these fully-authorized Japanese guitars came into existence through partnershipsbetween Gibson USA and various Japanese manufacturers and dealers (such as Aria, Matsumoku and Yamano Music) that extend back into the 1970s.
K stands for Kuramae, Yamano's wholesales division.
