Ormsby Shark GTR
Over 10 years ago we created a handmade custom shop guitar known as the Shark. It was a striking piece that has gone on to become synonymous with the brand. This year we see the evolution of the species with our new SX GTR Shark 2017 model.
Utilizing the high-caliber specifications of its custom single-cut predecessor, it features a chambered mahogany body with a quilted maple top and a distinctive shark f-hole. The neck features 3-piece flamed-maple construction with ebony pinstripes that pay homage to the original. The ebony fretboard features our "school of sharks" inlays, and the headstock has an ebony cap. There's also ivoroid binding just about everywhere.
Custom shop Hot Rock A8 and Apex pickups feature push-pull coil taps for extra tonal variety. Hardware, including locking tuners, is by Hipshot USA.
In the market for some new tone toys? Here's a head start for the latest gear in 2017.
