What we say:

Ormsby bring their off-kilter chic to another celebrated ‘shape’ guitar. This time, the design is a kind of surreal blend of the classic ‘EX’ shape and something like the Jackson Warrior (or indeed Ibanez’s short-lived Xyphos), in a way that is inimitably ‘Ormsby’! It’s a very individual guitar and we applaud Ormsby for carving their own path. We also happen to think that this guitar looks awesome!

As with other Ormsby GTR guitars, this has been built in Korea, to very stringent specs. This Metal X model leaves a very good impression: the finishing and build quality are exceptional.

This particular Metal X began life as a high quality piece of Swamp Ash, before being sculpted into the relatively extreme body shape it now is! A Flame Maple veneer has been added to the top, and the set neck is made from laminated Maple.

Since this is, like all Ormsby guitars, a multiscale instrument, the D-shape neck features two scale lengths: 25.5” at the high E and 27.5” at the low E. The slanted pickups, nut and bridge all help to sell the unusual body shape and contribute to the overall look.

The guitar’s quality is exemplified by the Ebony fingerboard and stainless steel frets.

Ormsby have their own pickups wound for their guitars. This Metal X model has two humbuckers: a ceramic Blizzard model in the neck and an alnico 5 Concordia neck unit. These units are designed to complement each other and, of course, they most certainly bring the Rock!

Ormsby guitars are excellent quality instruments for modern players with big personalities: this Metal X model in Double Blue may be their boldest yet!
