Hype GTR:
Ormsby’s most infamous model… it’s aggressive, lightweight, and build for the rigours of touring. The fanned arrangement of the Multiscale fretboard creates scale lengths for each individual string. We generally call this the “spread”. For the GTR range, the spread is as follows:
Eight string: 25.5″-28.3″ Multiscale
Body dimensions (thickness): 38mm. For comparison, Jacksons, Ibanez RG, Fender Strats, etc are generally 47mm.
Neck shape: 19.0mm @ 1st, 21 @ 17th, D shape with round shoulders. AKA “thin U”

Ormsby’s own proprietary Multiscale bridge and locking machine heads.

An Ormsby Hot Rock A8 model Humbucker (13.4k approximate DC resistance) features pride of place in the bridge position, with a De La Creme A2 (8.0k approximate DC resistance) in the neck. Both of these pickups are made to Ormsby’s specifications by our partners in Korea. 500k pots for volume, a 3 way toggle, and 500k push/pull tone pot for coil splitting. Tusq nut.

See below for full details. All models are GLOSS finish, with satin necks.
