Really nice top.

Well, the non-Japanese production of Orville by Gibson isn't very large.
And I think that cavity covers are changeble!!

The stamped serial number is less changeble :D

Beautifule Guitar.

I have a MIJ Orville by Gibson standard from 97 that is cherry sunburst and it has cream cavity covers as well.

All of the OBG 'standards' have cream covers, the 're-issues' come with black covers

Check out the ones on Villager's site they all fit that pattern :D I'm only going off the ones I've seen, but that seems to be the case.
