Extreme comfort and accurate tone
A revolution in comfort and tone. The Ormsby Goliath GTR features a multi-scale design with fanned frets, providing the player with optimum playability and incredible tone. Ormsby's remarkable multi-scale design has been developed over 10 years to deliver the most stunning, thrilling playing experience possible.
Each string has its own scale length, giving each note you play on every string perfect tonal sharpness. For example, the bass strings don't stretch as much as they would on a standard guitar when you hit them with force. This decreases the pitch increase you often get on lower strings when striking them aggressively. Intonation stays unbelievably accurate, no matter how energetically you play.
Then there's the feel. There have never been guitars that fit your hands as flawlessly as the Ormsby GTR Multi-Scale models, thanks to acutely designed fanned frets. The fretboards stretch out at gradually increasing angles from a straight fret at the 9th fret position. Ormsby's extensive research in developing the multi-scale revealed that this is the most natural resting position for the majority of guitarists. The frets then spread at angles from this central point to align with the shape of your wrist at various points along the neck. This completely eliminates cramp, and allows you to play on and on for as long as possible.
Pitch perfect with durable bone nut
The perfect tuning, for years to come. The key to achieving complete sonic brilliance. A hard-wearing, long-lasting bone nut locks your strings in place. Your tune will stay flawless for longer, eliminating the need for irritating re-tuning between songs. Bone is incredibly strong, and is the go-to premium material for manufacturing the nuts of the very best guitars in existence. Its strength also means the nut will last for many years, protecting your strings and removing the hassle of having to regularly replace the nut, as is the case with some weaker nut materials. Discover faultless precision in sound.
Headless, lightweight design
Astounding. You've never seen or felt a guitar quite like this before. The Goliath GTR's headless, cutaway shape is entirely unique. Despite the eye-catching nature of the model, this is not simply an aesthetic choice. The slim, diminished profile creates an instrument that is fantastically manoeuvrable and superbly lightweight.
This reduced size and weight allows the guitar to hang comfortably around your neck, eliminating strain and letting you play on long into the night. Furthermore, you'll be able to inject plenty of physical energy into your performances. The Goliath is so light, you can jump and thrash around on-stage without issue. Total ergonomic perfection.
Magnificent electric sound
Aggression and tone in an amazingly powerful pickup combination. The Ormsby Goliath Multi-Scale has a Nunchucker A8 bridge humbucker and a De La Creme A2 neck humbucker to give you a truly remarkable sound. These are Ormsby's own, wound in-house pickups designed to ideally suit the sound of each individual guitar they craft. When as much effort goes into making an instrument as it does with an Ormsby, a perfectly matched electronic system is essential to ensure sound quality is at the maximum.
The De La Creme neck pickup gives you clean rhythm tones to make every chord you play sound gorgeously defined. Its real talent, though, comes in its ability to make lead notes sing with sparkling sharpness. Combine this with the Nunchucker A8 bridge pickup which delivers scintillating aggression, and you've got a powerful pickup mix to give you astounding versatility and gigantic sound.
The Ormsby story
A tireless journey to craft the perfect guitar. Perry Ormsby was a talented carpenter for years before starting Ormsby Guitars. He would repeatedly promise to himself that he'd one day use his carpentry skills to make a fantastic guitar. The dream would eventually become a reality when Perry decided to give up everything, quit his job, sell his house, and chase his fantasy.
He never looked back. Shortly after crafting his very first model, word spread amongst guitarists, and Ormsby soon had an instrument waiting list of over two years. With the amazing multi-scale development, the company has gone from strength to strength. Their guitars are particularly popular within metal and hard rock genres, but are also suitable for blues and punk playing due to their magnificent playability. Original models crafted with love, passion, and extreme attention-to-detail.
