Hi Doug. I think Orlando was the name used by whatever distributor handled it in your part of the country. About 3 to 400 brand names came from about 8 guitar building factories in Japan (and later Korea and Taiwan) at that time. Same situation with strings. Many folks thought that every brand of strings was different in some way, but the vast majority were made by Labella, Vinci, or D'merle. I own a very well made rosewood guitar with the brand name "Shero" (inlayed in pearl) on the headstock. Even though I'm pretty experienced in tracking down instruments, I've had no luck at all narrowing it down to under six or seven possibillities. Figure it was made in the same factory as instruments labeled "Morris", but that's just a guess.

Thinking of the brand name bit, I can't remember if I have mentioned it before but I saw 2 identical (except for the badge) in a local music shop. I think one was labeled Epiphone and the other Ozark but there was about £100 difference on the price tags. I mentioned it to my friend who had the shop and he agreed that they were the same and checked his prices and they were correct according to his lists... I think it was that manodlin that we then looked for in the Samick catalogue and found what looked to be the same instrument...

Doug, I have a model 305 Orlando.
Your best source for info, is the veteran guys & gals who service the work bench at any good guitar shop like McCabe's in Santa Monica, California.
The sound of the 305 I found very nice. The annular rings on the front are closely spaced. I don't think the top is made of plywood, rather solid wood (I may be mistaken). The sides and back appear well constructed.
The action has held up pretty well since I have owned it. It came in our family in the early 70's. My sister gave it to me when she got a much more expensive guitar, buy I think it sounds as good the more expensive one.
For its size it has very decent projection.
It stays in tune well with seasoned strings.
It is my learner guitar

Regards,

Joe, Los Angeles, California

I have an Orlando guitar model 316 (pint size) it is 40 years old with original strings and it is still in tune and has a beautiful tone.   My husband who plays guitar very well was impressed. Does anyone know what it is worth? My father got it for me when we lived in the San Fernando Valley Mr Finn of Finn's music store (great guy with a terrific family). I was so small that they got me either 1/2 scale or 3/4 scale guitar.

I have an Orland 710E or 7101 that I bought around 1970 in L. A. area. Given the time I probably spent less than $200 and maybe more like $100. It says "Guitarra Classica de Espana" on the inside but it also says "Made in Japan". It has a 2" neck at the nut. Much wider than my Fender Jaguar but I was going for a different style and is kind to my fat fingers. Seems to be fretted well and is true up and down the neck thankfully because there is no adjustment at all. It's been through a lot including the '94 earthquake and has held together but I wish it had more volume - although I've always had nylon strings. I just bought a new Gibson banjo and am tempted to buy a new guitar as its mate but the Orlando seems to serve its purpose well enough. Hope this has some value for you.

I have an Orlando 310 that my wife bought in the SFV in the early '70's for cheap. I also have a '61 Goya G10 I bought for $150 from a pawn shop in OC in about '72. I think the Orlando is every bit as good as the Goya, and better in fact, given that my action on the Goya is WAY too high, and can't be adjusted.

I have an older 12 string, Model 337, serial # 0612 (stamped on the inner block). I bought it because it reminded of my friend's Orlando 12 he was given back in 71 or so when we first played together (now 34 years ago). No idea what the age is or the origin.

Wow lot's of info here about Orlando guitars but nothing very helpful to me.I found one in an antique shop recently and almodt bought it's a model (336) 6 string acoustic with the cool ajustable bridge and i think mahogony neck very much like an old Crestwood 12 string i owned back in the early eighties.the were asking $108 but after I noticed the raised tail piece I said forget it>It may cost too much to repair it and it looked like it was stored in a barn.It had tons of dust inside of it and what appeared to be bird droppings!The sad thing was it had almost zero fret wear.I may go back and try to get it for $50 later....

I recently bought an Orlando 12 string for 25 dollars. My luthier looked at it and said that it wasn't the usual 12 string neck on a dreadnought body, it's actually braced for the extra tension. It has a zero fret and an adjustable bridge(both of which would not be my 1st choice), but strung with Lead Belly gauge strings and tuned down to B and it's a killer. It's a model 337. For under a C-note (if you figure in the cost of the setup and strings)it wasn't a bad deal, I figure.

I have a steel string model 336 and it sounds wonderful after I put some grovers on it to keep proper tuning. It has a cross motif on the headstock, thin, oblong fret markers, and a guild style pickguard. Spruce top and rosewood sides and back......I was just playing some   fingerstyle Townes Van Zant and was getting lost in the mellow but crisp tone of the guitar. This is the perfect camping or kick around guitar because it's not worth much but sounds better than most guitars out there, including the higher end ones.

I have an orlando rickenbacker copy that I got off of the goodwill auction site.Its an EXACT copy of a 330,except it had crappy "harmony" style pickups and a cheesey vibrato on it(ok I guess it wasnt an EXACT copy but the body,neck,2 layerd pick guard, and truss rod cover were exact).I replaced the pickups with some decent humbuckers,replaced the bridge with a tune-o-matic,and put a trapeze tail piece on it. It has a set neck joint that cracked when my drummer knocked it over.When I had it repaired the fix it guy said that there was about 4 or 5 in. of wood after the fretboard and that it was stuck in the body with some shims and a bunch of glue.He reglued it and sunk 2 screws in the top of the body above the neck pickup securing it to the body(I know I cant spell Im a musician and its 4:17 in the morning).After all that This guitar just SCREAMS.I took off the metal orlando name plate at the top of the headstock and had a friend make some ric style vinyl stick on letters for the truss cover.So now its my WRECKENBACKER.Check out my myspace page to see some pics of it(myspace.com/superbeatle)There are also some pics of it on my bands website(thetwerps.com).Enjoy.Robbie Cadwell.

I had an Orlando Les Paul Custom that my dad bought for me for Xmas 1969 from Finn's Music in Sherman Oaks, CA. It became my first professional guitar as I used it playing in a few bands making a few bucks as a kid. I used it until Xmas of 1975 when I finally got my first real Gibson Les Paul. I then sold the Orlando to a friend who liked it and have regretted it ever since. Luckily, I found an Orlando Les Paul on Ebay, exactly like the one I had and realized they weren't too bad for being a copy. Plus it brought back a ton of good memories. I wish there was more info on the guitar and the company that made them.

Saw this old thread and wanted thought I'd add to the mystery... got an Orlando Guitar Model 310, Japan as the label inside says... my mom bought it in the San Jose area in the early 70's... other than that, no additional info.

I have an Orlando 12 string, model 337, made in Japan, that my parents bought for me in the early 70's in San Diego. I have been interested in selling it and trying to do research online about how much it might be worth. I have been amazed at how little information there is out there about them. I did see a picture of a Kent guitar, also made in japan, that looked exactly like my Orlando.

Ibanez makes them, early to mid 70s. Copied most of the popular guitars of the era with decent quality, before copyright infringements were inforced.
