    Well I wasn't too far off with the "blood splatter/slaughter burst" comment on the facebook group! That looks mean as fvck. And the ocean fade is just perfect. Are these going to be available as 6 & 7 in both colors?

    Shark Limited Edition 2017 Run.
    General public preview and dealer early release.
    --
    Over 10 years ago we 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.

    Good lord! Those are freaking epic with killer specs! Ocean Fade 6, Blood Bath 7. Gotta happen. Man I wish those pickup clips were working. Maybe it's time to hire some young local riffer to record some new ones? Just a thought.

    What else is there to say? These are EPIC!!! Patience paid off waiting for these!

    So when can I buy stock in Ormsby? I'm going to have enough GTRs and customs to justify.

    Ok wait, so how do I get myself involved? Do I sign up for a FB group? Also, any of those going to be non-fanned? (Curious more than anything) though that would turn 4 SKU's into 8 and may be ridiculous.

    Yes, sign up for the GTR Group on Facebook, and/or contact a dealer through the listed dealers on the Ormsby Guitars website (link above in the run description). All of these are fanned, two colors, both available in 6 or 7 string.

    Most dealers have either sold out, or nearly sold out.

    Public release will be in the fb group before anywhere else.

    No standard frets this time but they will be offered in the gtr range again soon.

    Just cancel and reapply. Sometime fb glitches. Make sure your profile is viewable so the mods can see you're not a spammer.
