Held: Per Black CJ and Allsop J, Beaumont J dissenting, the bill of lading did not enumerate packages or units as packed beyond the identification of the container as one package thus art 4.5.c applied.
Article 3.8 only applies where the bill of lading enumerates packages or units and includes a clause that says that the enumeration is not agreed to be 'part of the bill of lading'.
Orville by Gibson, Orville, and Greco were all mainly produced by Fugi-gen Gakki, although Terada was involved in the later Ob G's also Orville by Gibson were the Japanese manufactured Gibson Les Paul, fully approved and authorised by Gibson USA.
The Japanese made guitar was actually a closer copy of the 1959 LP than the Gibson USA guitar being produced at that time.
The primary judge calculated the value by reference to the value of the goods in Australia because of the perceived inadequacy of the evidence of the value at the port of discharge.
The plaintiffs appealed and the defendant cross-appealed.
Model EG59-85 upward, have Nitro finishes and some 82 transition models have fret edge binding, with high quality electrics and Greco P. The later years, 89-91 the EG1000D appeared, which was an EG59-100 with Seymour Duncan pickups as stock.
Most of the Ob G flametops are laminate, but there are some solid flametop guitars, these are extremely rare.
The Japanese models usually had a long tenon like the 1959 LP's, and are not weight relieved, the US Standard version did not have a long tenon and is weight relieved.
The Orville by Gibson Les Paul Reissue series (LPR ) 1993-1994, were the top of the range Japanese produced Gibsons, they all have stock Gibson USA electrics and pickups, usually nitrocellulose laquer finishes, blank truss rod covers and fret edge binding, and were only made from late 1992 to early 1995, they also tend to have the fattest necks of all the Ob G's.
Some Burny Super Grade models follow the same construction techniques as the above, some do not have the long tenon, but up to and including the FLG/RLG-90 model, all have poly finishes, (apart from FLG's from 1980/81 ) and the higher spec models have fret binding.
The rarest and best models are the 1980/81 FLG's, 90/150/240, they all have 1 piece backs and flamed tops, the 90 being a veneer and the higher models solid, they all have a nitro finish, and a stamped ser no on the headstock back.
