    I'm considering an Orville T-Bird locally. It's black and looks to be all original except that it wears a Gibson nameplate.

    What do you think they're worth? My thought was $1100 or so. I almost never see them.

    Thanks!
     
  2. That seems a bit high, since I typically see used Gibson Thunderbirds going from 1000-1200.

    It seems that you're close to the real thing. You might be happier getting a real bird.

    Way too much, though it's probably better.
