Ormsby Guitars Now At GAK!

After months of anticipation and eagerly awaiting a special delivery straight from the World Music Factory, We are very proud to announce that GAK will now be stocking Ormsby Guitars, online and in-store!

We will be featuring two types of models; the Ormsby Hype GTR Multiscale/Standard available as a 6, 7 and 8 string, along with the Ormsby SX GTR Multiscale also available as a 6 and 7 string. Each guitar comes in a beautiful finish/colour, and as each Ormsby Guitar is made in ‘Runs’ as they call it, no two guitars will ever be the same!

Ormsby are one of the most unique brands to arrive in the last decade; Ormsby throw all conventions out of the window in pursuit of a new definition of the ultimate guitar. Specialising in fanned fret and extended range, the Ormsby brand have a wholly original method of batch production. Each series of guitars is the result of community voted specifications, and are produced and released in numbered batches. So every guitar is part of a very short one-off run, meaning that each guitar is unique to its series and run.

Starting life as a custom shop, and now being manufactured out of Korea’s famous World Music factory, Ormsby Guitars offer a marriage of affordability and features seen virtually nowhere else in the guitar community.

The Ormsby Guitars Hype GTR is our production version of the coveted Hypemachine made in our Australian custom shop. For many years now this modern guitar model has been turning heads the world over for its balanced aggressive looks. The Hype GTR is designed to meet the needs and demands of modern guitarists.

It features a modern deep carve set-neck that allows players to have unhindered access to all 24 stainless steel frets. We included our most popular custom shop neck carve; a balanced D shape with round shoulders that provides just the right feel and ‘meat’ to the neck and a perfect thumb resting position.

As with all our GTR models, the Hype GTR utilises our Australian custom shop designed pickups that 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.
