For anyone who may not be keeping tabs on the Facebook group dedicated to discussion and announcements of upcoming GTR production models, here is a little bit of a preview of what's in the pipeline from Ormsby Guitars!!
Expanding on the options offered in the first run, several new colours including one featuring a maple fretboard, additionally figured tops will be available in the next run. Yes, that's right! FIGURED TOPS! Walnut burl makes an appearance on the HypeGTR model as well as two burst stained quilted maple options pictured below. HypeGTR models will also be available in both standard scale as well as multiscale, this run will also see the addition of 8 string models to the HypeGTR lineup. More traditional colour options are also available with some popular favorites from the first run being available once again as well as some great new colours. One lucky customer will also be getting their hands on this extra special swirl paint job HypeGTR through us here at Goodgear Music. With only 10 of these guitars being produced and the swirl paint job being done by Perry Ormsby himself, this guitar will definitely be one to turn heads!
The second run also sees the arrival of a completely new model from Ormsby Guitars called the TX GTR. This model will be available in 6 and 7 string configuration and is currently only available in multiscale format. The TX GTR comes in "Ye Olde" colour options featuring pastel style colours and a pearloid pick guard, as well as a maple fretboard. The TX GTR Carbon is a slightly more modernized model based on the same body style but features more attention grabbing colour schemes as well as a carbon fiber pick guard. If you purchase this model you will also have the choice to upgrade to a chameleon colour changing finish as an upcharge! We will be definitely be getting one of those in store.
The last TX GTR model coming out later this year is the Eaton Special which was specced out by none other than Chris Eaton himself! If you've been paying attention on the GTR Facebook Group page you will no doubt be familiar with Chris's tireless efforts creating the amazing mockups of the GTR models for us all to drool over and helping more than a few of us to decide precisely which model/s we really can not live without owning. With a swamp ash body, stained flame maple top, pearloid binding and ebony fretboard, Chris certainly knows how to spec out a killer guitar, I'm really looking forward to trying one of these out when they arrive!
