The Orville by Gibson is a sham and going back tomorrow...

The Tokai is a wonderful and the les paul I have always wanted ? Except it was dropped by one of the shipping companies and the fretboard is detached from the neck between 1 and 4 and there appears to be a hairline crack behind the headstock? I am really down right now and I know I need to put my big boy pants on and accept this for what it is.

I just needed to say what was going on, I am also whining in the les paul forum.

A sham as in it's a lousy guitar, or it's a fake?

Bummer about the Tokai. My LS80S goldtop is my favorite guitar.

I have an Edwards Jimmy Page in my future.

"A sham as in it's a lousy guitar, or it's a fake?"

It had some pups that were "missing the stickers" acording to the seller Gibson classic 57's came with OBG, the point... The pickups, the fresh orange peel clear lacquer, etc.. If you knew what I paid you would do the same.

Honestly, it could be a fake.

A real-deal Orville is a *fine* guitar. I've never seen one that was sub-par.

They are collectible these days, so there is a market for fakes. And China (as well as independent makers) are cranking them out to sell as the Genuine Article.
