Ormsby Guitars SX GTR Limited Edition Shark

Over 10 years ago Ormsby Guitars 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. This year we see the evolution of the species with our new SX GTR Shark Limited model...

Utilizing one of our most popular guitar shapes, we’ve taken the modern style of our SX Multiscale and incorporated the beauty and high calibre specifications of its single-cut custom predecessor. A chambered semi-hollow Mahogany 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 Fame Maple construction with Ebony pinstripes, paying true homage to the original. The Ebony fretboard is inlaid with our ‘school of sharks’ in Mother of Pearl, and completed with an Ebony headstock cap. Ivoroid binding is used for the body and neck for that perfect extra touch.

For even the most avid tone chasers who demand versatility from their instruments, the Hot Rock A8 humbucker and Apex A5 single coil pickups designed in our custom shop deliver, with push/pull coil taps added for extra tonal variety. As with all our guitars, custom hardware by Hipshot Products USA is used for our bridge, locking tuners and controls, so you’ll stay blissfully in tune.

The SX GTR Shark Limited is an endangered species and only 250 will be made available worldwide in two unique finishes - Ocean Dream and Blood Bath.
