What we say:
Ormsby guitars originally hail from Australia, where company leader Perry Ormsby has been designing cutting edge, outrageous multi-scale guitars for over a decade.
Leading the way with exotic timbers, original body shapes and innovative hardware combinations, Ormsby’s guitars are immediately distinctive.
These production models are made at World Musical Instruments in Korea, well known as creators of some of the finest imported guitars in the world. Ormsby guitars impress with their attention to detail, extreme styling and superlative sound.
The Ormsby Goliath GTR is their production model headless, multi-scale guitar. The Goliath is designed for light weight and balance as well as for providing a wide range of tones that span from extremely clean to thunderously heavy.
This Goliath, from Ormsby’s 9th run of guitars, is a 7 string model and utilises a chambered body for even lighter weight!
24 Stainless steel frets arranged fan-style provide a multi-scale of 25.5-27.8”. Needless to say, intonation is perfect on every position of the neck and at every fret. Ormsby include their logo in black at the 12th fret.
Custom-designed humbuckers - a Hot Rock A8 and a De La Creme - provide the wide-ranging tones that contemporary players need. This guitar by turns sounds smooth, crunchy, glassy and brutal.
The bridge is a custom design too and made especially for Ormsby by World Instruments. It is essentially an individual bridge for each of the 7 strings, carefully positioned for correct intonation of the multi-scale length.
Adventurous guitarists on the new wave of progressive technical music will adore this wild and spectacular Ormsby Goliath! This example is available here in Purr Pull (Purple) with a Flame Maple veneer and an Maple fingerboard.
