About Orvilles:
Orville is a brand made in Japan that Gibson USA produced for the Japanese market from the 1980s to the 90s.
There were two series, "Orville" and "Orville by Gibson".  Orville reserved for those made in Japan for Japan markets.
All parts and body of "Orville" are made in Japan.  
This initial model was manufactured by "Terada Musical Instruments" and was manufactured by "Fujigen" from the mid-1980s.

Named after the founding father of Gibson guitars, Orville H. Gibson, these fully-authorized Japanese guitars came into existence through partnerships between Gibson USA and various Japanese manufacturers. It wasn't until 1986 when Yamano Gakki took over the distribution of Gibson guitars in Japan, and later in 1988, decided to expand their lineup of guitar models, that things really got rolling for the Orville and Orville by Gibson brands.n

Yamano Gakki decided to go with a different name for this expanded line of guitars, that were designed in the exact form of the most valuable and sought-after classic Gibson guitars.  It was decided upon to use "Orville" as the new brand name, dedicating the brand to the founding father. As it was decided that some of these guitars would be equipped with preferred Japanese-made PAF pickups and some with USA-made pickups to try and mimic USA parts. 

All “Orville” guitars were equipped with Japanese PAF pickups - They decided to include the post-script "by Gibson" for the models that had pickups of American origin. 
Orvilles are great guitars and found by collectors to be made much better than their USA counterparts.
