    So I got this guitar at the end of summer - I was taking a break from forums and couldn't be bothered posting it. I bought it as a graduation present for myself but thanks to an as*hole prof I still haven't graduated yet - its a 91 Orville by Gibson LP Std in the best of all burst colours and survived 3 months on a boat to New Zealand. When I get it back in my hands it will have an overhaul with some Lace Dirty Heshers and 13-60's, I call it 'The Druid' and I seriously doubt I will ever sell it.

    The previous owner was apparently a Japanese rock kid who has kinda but not totally terrible taste in music. I will need to scrape these off - oh and I will probably do the whole Grover tuners thing at some point and fill in the gap around the 12th fret inlay which is a blatant replacement (its not even the same colour as the rest :lol:) but I loves it.

    No don't do it, they're part of it now. Don't touch the mojo.

    Leave the stickers, they're a reminder that you rescued this guitar from the hands of a monster.

    Congrats on your purchase. The stickers are indeed terrible EXCEPT for the Smashing Pumpkins sticker, for as I enjoy Smashing Pumpkins somewhat.

    I hate stickers on guitars. They have no place on a nice looking lp style guitar like that.

    Haven't heard of Orville by Gibson before. Are these supposed to be somewhere between Epiphone and Gibson?

    Not really but kind of- it was meant as a different brand than Epiphone during the 80s and 90s after Epiphone production was moved to Korea.

    Orville, Epi and Gibson are legally allowed to carry the Les Paul name so you don't have to do the whole 'style' thing which some people split hairs about... I don't, if its a single cut and looks like a Les Paul its a Les Paul... Like Tokai Les Pauls and Navigator Les Pauls :D

    Yeah I hate stickers too, hence these getting a dose of Eucalipt oil and some rubbing... read into that what you will :lol:

    Nice looking guitar you have there. At least one good thing is that the stickers are on the back of the guitar instead of the front. Who looks at the back of a guitar anyway?
