    I'm very happy to announce that Ormsby Guitars will be doing a 2014 Hypemachine Run! I'll be helping Perry coordinate this run again and hope to offer even more updates and information as the run progresses.

    If you're interested, leave a message here and keep an eye on this thread.

    Prices start at $2650 incl. hard case, with MAXIMUM shipping WORLDWIDE (inc insurance) capped at $100. (generally its $250+ to post a guitar internationally)

    All guitars will be on a payment plan to make them very affordable for everyone. Deposit is $250!

    More info soon!

    Edit: Payment information & BASIC Specs

    The payments shall be:
    Deposit (payable to secure your spot) $250
    Specifications selected and confirmed (by mid January) $250
    Body blanks glued and machined to thickness (end of February) $250
    Neck blanks glued and machined square (end of March) $250
    Majority of body work completed (end of April) $250
    Majority of neck work completed (mid July) $250

    NO ONE had a build like this on the 2013 run and I'm sure you can understand why. There are HEAPS of great UPGRADES on offer, including new options that weren't available in the 2013. Perry has given me a sneak look at some of the tops he has on order too ;)

    IMPORTANT: Please PM me your Facebook EMAIL so that I can add you to our group. User names won't work.
    You'll receive an invite notification and then you can join!

    Ha! This is going to kill me.

    Looking forward to it though, just like a true GAS-addict. :shred:

    To anyone who's keen, please make sure you have a Facebook account. It makes management a lot easier and there's loads of great discussions and updates to be had.
    Also, anyone who's keen to try out a multiscale and lives Melbourne way is welcome to come and try mine.

    Potentially interested. Out of curiosity, any specs currently known to be variable/fixed? Scale length, number of strings, etc.

    Here is how the payment plan will work.


    The payments shall be:
    Deposit (payable to secure your spot) $250
    Specifications selected and confirmed (by mid January) $250
    Body blanks glued and machined to thickness (end of February) $250
    Neck blanks glued and machined square (end of March) $250
    Majority of body work completed (end of April) $250
    Majority of neck work completed (mid July) $250

    Instruments ready to ship $$$remainder

    For the periods in bold that's when I'll be in the workshop with Perry photographing and videoing pretty much everything going on. I've invested about $3500 in camera gear in the last month and the 2014 run is a good excuse to purchase more!

    There is also a 7.5% discount on the total cost of the build for repeat customers or if you order more than one guitar.
