The GTR range is our first production ready instrument range. Based on the Hypemachine, SX and the new TX  and Goliath designs, and featuring both Multiscale and regular fret layout, these instruments are built to withstand the rigours of touring, without the custom build price tag.

Two years ago, we decided the time was right to start exploring the option of production based instruments. Since then we have been refining designs, material lists and production teams, hardware supplies and scheduling.

RUN 4 Goliath GTR Models

DIMENSIONS
The fanned arrangement of the Multiscale fretboard creates scale lengths for each individual string. We generally call this the "spread". For the GTR range, the spread is as follows:

Six string: 25.5" - 27.5" Multiscale
Seven string: 25.5" - 27.8" Multiscale
Eight String: 25.5" - 28.2" Multiscale 
(Note: Model depicted in photo is the 7 string variant)


Due to the increased scale length on the bass side, the tension of the strings increases. We recommend you try dropping a gauge on the bottom end, for example, if you usually use 9-46's, try 9-42's. To learn more about Multiscale, please view our information page here.

Body dimensions (thickness): 38mm Goliath GTR. For comparison, Jacksons, Ibanez RG, Fender Strats, etc are generally 47mm.

Neck shape: 20.3mm @ 1st, 22 @ 17th, D shape with round shoulders.
AKA "thin U"

HARDWARE
The bridges are custom made for us to exacting tolerances by our partners at World Music, using a variety of materials proven for longevity and tone. This is the same manufacturer often used by other well known headless manufacturers.

TONE
Our own Nunchucker A8 Humbucker features pride of place in the bridge position, with an De La Creme A2 in the neck. Both of these pickups are made to our own specifications by our partners in Korea. 500k pots for volume, a 3 way toggle, and 500k push/pull tone pot for coil splitting. Bone nut.

PLEASE NOTE - As this is a preorder item the shipping date has been intentionally grossly over estimated, orders will ship within one business day of guitars arriving in store.
