    Ordered this one a while back and now that I have some interesting pictures, I thought it'd be a good idea to share the p0rn.

    Specs:
    Ormsby SX multiscale
    Body: Tasmanian Blackwood
    Top: "Devil's Cut" radiused 5A Quilted Maple stained Purple
    Colour: Purple
    Neck: Maple (Bolt on)
    Fretboard: Ebony
    Inlay: undecided
    Frets: Stainless Steel
    Pickups: Ormsby Nuchucker bridge + Oldschool single coil neck

    Some final specs are still being discussed and depends on what Perry has in mind.

    ... and without further a do:

    Wondering what Perry has in mind with the stain-job.

    Perry heading out on a much deserved holiday, so no more updates for a til next month.

    Awesome! Loving that quality quilt maple.
    The devil's carve is awesome. Makes for a beautiful thickness and comfy contour. I had that on my course built 7 that ended up selling for camera gear.

    Can't wait to see more!

    Edit:

    What is that flamed maple neck and headstock?! That's 'my shape'. So good to see it again!

    The flame neck is a second guitar for Simon. Roman theme. His fretboard is there too.

    The Ziricote neck is an Ultimo Shark. $11,000 worth of guitar, which scares the hell out of me. It will have a 24k gold top, Brazilian Rosewood, etc etc etc :O

    There is a turtle inlaid neck there as well which is one on the new body shapes (DC), and the lighting bolt fretboard is an SX Multiscale trem 7.

    But, knowing the purples I can see in my mind, David's guitar is the ONE right now.

    I'm glad to see more proper Ormsby-styled builds starting up lately. Those were what got me interested in your stuff, Perry.

    Agreed! :agreed:


    I think Perry thought I was mad for the two or three tops I turned down. They are now being drooled over in another thread on this forum. I'm super friggin' happy with this one.


    Cheers


    It may or may not feature subtlety, depending on a few ideas Perry has.



    Yep. I too am not a big fan of the -machine guitars. They look nice, but not for me.
