    a buddy of mine was at namm, and sent me a picture of an ormsby eaton special that i absolutely fell in love with.

    I managed to wrangle the ormsby guys and convinced them to sell me the actual guitar they had on display at NAMM, and it arrived yesterday.

    I'm really impressed with the guitar. it's exactly what i would expect from a WMI instrument. I went over the guitar with a fine toothed comb, and other than a little extra glue on the nut, it's 100% flawless.


    anyway, on with the show!

    and apparently the guitar is a dirty little whore, because it got manhandled by these guys

    on another note, the neck profile is interesting. I have a dino LACS, and that thing is thin and flat. this thing has rounded edges, and it's flat on the inside. it's definitely different form a wizard style neck. it's certianly comfortable.

    I love the TX. It’s like if Dali painted a Telecaster.

    Congrats, that a great looking piece - love the body / finish.
    And yes - it must be thoroughly disinfected because 1) NAMMthrax 2) You really don't want to know where Dino's been.

    Dino’s hands, at most, have just seen several cheeseburgers/tacos, I would be more worried about devins mitts laying on some weird stuff. That dude is an enigma.

    Sooo, i love the way it plays but i'm not a fan of the factory pickup. it's very djent-centric. not really my sound. heavy on the midrange and high end.

    not a huge deal. I'm having a custom pickup wound for it.

    Ormsby sell the pickup baseplates, so you can adapt any normal pickup, so you wont have to guess the angle. Unless its all already taken care off

    it will sound different depending on baseplate and in most cases it is made from conductive materials, not plastics

    Fender, DiMarzio and various makers used phenolic baseplates for many years. You only need a conductive baseplate if you're soldering the ground to it.

    we are talking humbuckers here, I haven't seen many with non conductive baseplates, probably the only ones I can think off are some rails like dimebucker
