Ormsby Guitars have been circulating on the online guitar scene for a few years now. They are an Australian brand that have gained a reputation for creating contemporary instruments for a modern guitar community. Appointments such as multi-scale bridges, fanned frets, headless guitars, rare and exotic tone woods and radical finishes have made Ormsby Guitars some of the most sought after on the market - and we are proud to announce that we will be one of the UK guitar dealerships to have Perry Ormsby's incredible guitars in stock.
The Hype GTR 6 has a Fanned fret neck, with the bridge ranging from 27.5" on the low E, through to 25.5" on the High E. this increases tension in the lower register, allowing for thinner strings to retain their pitch, without having to increase thickness.
The Hype GTR 6 has Custom made Hipshot Bridges and locking Hipshot tuners for ultimate tuning stability.
The Sophia Blue version is made of Mahogany, with a stunning carved bevel on the top of the body, and the set neck is a 5-piece laminated rock maple affair with a satin finish. It has an ebony fingerboard, stainless steel frets and mother of pearl inlays with Luminlay side - dots.
They are specified with Dual humbuckers - Ormsby Nunchucker A8 in the bridge, and a De La Creme A2 Neck humbucker, mounted on a slant to accommodate the varying bridge positions across the guitar. Coil Tap Capability allows for Single Coil tones.
