    Some notes on condition:

    Little bits of dust here and there that look to (potentially) be under the clear coat. Not sure if it’s just the way it looks in my room, but I figure that it’s worth mentioning. You certainly can’t see them without hunting though, so not a really blemish per se. Nothing else to speak of other than the general hallmarks that come with something being handmade rather than machine made. Haven’t had it long enough to let anything else happen to it.

    Some notes on sound:

    The pickups are his own blend, can’t recall what models we started with, but they aren’t crazy hot. The bridge is really clear and balanced and the neck is warm and ‘chimey.’ I realize that’s pretty generic, but everyone’s ear is different, so it’s hard to be completely objective. If I had to throw out a really baseless comparison, I’d say the bridge is reminiscent of an AlNiCo Nailbomb and the neck a VHII from the BKP range. For what it’s worth, the split coil sounds you can get out of these pickups are the best I’ve ever heard. If Perry ever starts mass marketing his house-wound pickups, it might be worth it to grab a set just for that purpose….seriously, they’re that good.

    Other notes:

    You can check out Perry applying the stain to this guitar in one of the videos he posted on the Ormsby GTR FaceBook group. I just asked him add a little bit more blue to the edges over what’s shown in that video.

    Modifications (if any):


    Accessories (hardshell case etc):

    Comes with the Hardshell case provided by Ormsby and the hardware for adapting to straplocks.

    Location (City,State or City,Country):

    Gahanna, Ohio, USA

    International OK?:

    Yes, but shipping is 100% on you and duties may be costly.

    Contact Info (No Phone #s):

    PM me here.

    References (eBay or other forum userid):

    My iTrader should suffice; if you need further references, we can talk.

    Price (include currency and if firm/obo):

    Looking for $3,500 shipped to the CONUS. I’m open to reasonable offers, but as you well know, these aren’t cheap and the wait time isn’t anything to shake a stick at.

    Really not looking for trades at this time.


    More available at request, just let me know what you want to see.
