Ormsby Run 14
We are proud to offer the following instruments for Ormsby GTR Production Run 14 of the GTR Series: Goliath GTR and Shark Limited
Back, due popular demand, we have 4 new colors for the Goliaths, including two with gold hardware. And following the great success of the Sharks, Ormsby decided to release two new colors with the Goliath shape, this time with a black limba body. Awesome isn’t?
DEEP SEA AND SEA WEED
Over 10 years ago we created a handmade custom shop guitar known as ‘The Shark’. A single-cut, exotic timber model with distinct shark inlays and a shark F-hole as part of the guitar’s semi-hollow construction. It was a striking piece that has gone on to become as synonymous with the brand as birds are to PRS. When we added the GTR series of instruments to our roster of available models, built by our partners at World Musical Instruments, we always imagined we could bring together their ability to fulfill our desires, and our innovative ideas for new models... In 2017 we announced the evolution of the species with our new SX GTR Shark Limited model. And in 2020, we are proud to present the headless version of the series: Goliath Shark Limited Edition.
Utilizing one of our most popular guitar shapes, we’ve taken the modern style of our Goliath and incorporated the beauty and high calibre specifications of its single-cut custom predecessor. A chambered semi-hollow Black Limba body with a Maple top and Quilt Maple veneer is at the core of the tone of this model, with the distinctive shark F-hole adorning the top. The neck features a 3-piece Flame Maple construction with Ebony pinstripes, paying true homage to the original. The Ebony fretboard is inlaid with our ‘school of sharks’ and logo in Mother of Pearl. Cream binding is used for the fretboard for that perfect extra touch.
As with all our GTR models, the Goliath utilises our custom designed pickups to produce a variety of tones that allow your guitar, effects, and amp to function in unison and retain their individual characteristics. This guitar can go from the cleanest cleans to the heaviest of metals (or djents!) with plenty of tones in between thanks to its coil-splitting options. For even the most avid tone chasers who demand versatility from their instruments, the Hot Rock A8 and Concordia A5 humbucking pickups have been designed with coil split functionality in mind for extra tonal variety.
The Goliath GTR Shark Limited is an endangered species and only 200 will be made available worldwide in two unique finishes - Sea Weed Fade and Deep Sea Fade .
As with all GTR models, these instruments are built in partnership with our friends at World Musical Instrument Co. S. Korea.
