Ormsby Run 4 Update
With Run 4 currently in production at WMI the wait for the Goliaths is nearly over!
Here is the latest little snippet of news from Perry:
"We will be getting our final build date this week. Then we book flights and head up there. We've passed the point of having guitars delivered by boat before Xmas so we will be air freighting them in now.
I know Hipshot were air freighting parts either late last week or early this week. WMI got the first bridges off the line (7s were first) the week before last so they could start running bodies. (They need at least one bridge to confirm routs and intonation).

Ormsby Run 4 Goliaths Incoming!
The news we have all been waiting for! All pending Ormsby containers held up by CITES have been released.
Scheduling of the production will happen over the next few weeks, taking into consideration all companies effected.
The Goliath GTR features a unique headless stock piece that reduces the weight and size of the guitar dramatically when compared to more traditional guitars and is tuned at the bridge. The Goliath utilizes an easy access bolt-on neck construction that gives the player full control over its 24 stainless steel frets, and a beautifully balanced D shape with round shoulders provides just the right feel and 'meat' to the neck.
As with all our GTR models, the Goliath utilises our custom wound pickups to produce a variety of tones that allow your guitar, effects, and amp to function in unison and retain their individual characteristics. This guitar can go from the cleanest cleans to the heaviest of metals (or djents!) with plenty of tones in between thanks to its coil-splitting options.
Multiscale is a standard featur of the Goliath Headless GTR and helps to complete the ergonomic benefits of the guitar as a whole. We've teamed up with Hipshot Products USA once again to create a custom bridge piece that is of the highest quality to provide comfort and longevity on the road and in the studio.
Every Goliath Headless GTR comes with a custom fitted gig bag that is compact, functional and most importantly durable.
