I picked up a `94 Orville LP Custom Black Beauty a while back.
For those of you who are not familiar with these here is some quick background.
Orville Gibson is the founder of Gibson guitars. For a few years in Japan in the late 80`s and early 90`s Gibson licensed this line of "Orville" guitars to be a Superior quality instrument over the Epiphone and Aria and all the other copies being made, yet still more affordable than the "Gibson" brand.
Some people say the quality of the woods and craftsmanship rival and are even SUPERIOR to the Gibson Custom shop guitars of today. I personally agree with this frame of mind after owning this guitar. The neck is wicked on this not too thick, not to thin. The binding and pearl work are amazing. It is non chambered Mahogany super thick, heaviest LP I`ve ever felt.
The only thing that is inferior is the electronics the pups are not waxed the feedback horrible and sound thin for such a heavy Mahogany guitar. I dont care for the pots either. Also the bridge is more like an SG bridge very small, thin and light weight.
I am going to put Lollar Imperials in it so I dont need pup suggestions.
I need input on wiring, pots, switch and bridges.
I know theres a lot of guys out there doing LP electronics and was hoping that some of you who have tried different ones could cut out the guess work for me.
I dont want this thread to be about arguing over the quality of Gibson guitars. Just need bridge and electronics input.
