    I'm selling my 1989-1990 Orville by Gibson Thunderbird. I'd say it's in very good condition- has some honest player wear/mojo but nothing that affects playability. I've tried to show the largest dings, which are mainly on the lower edge of the body and around the headstock. Pretty cool for a 25 year old bass.

    A few things have been added. Someone put a "Gibson" truss rod cover on it, but this is in fact an Orville. Second, somebody put a third strap button behind the neck to alleviate neck drop. Bass hangs fairly parallel to the ground. Other than the truss rod cover, everything else seems to be original and works well. Truss rod works fine, fret wear is mild. Weight is 9.0 pounds by my bathroom scale.

    Comes with OHSC shown. $850 $750 shipped to CONUS only.

    No trades. Sorry.
