This is a serious Instrument, if you're looking at this than you probably already know. 7 String Hype GTR in walnut with a swamp ash body. The swap ash body is particularly hard to come by so don't miss your chance. This guitar comes with an ebony fret board, all hipshot hardware, stainless steal frets, and a multiscale neck. You can find all the exact specifications on the ormsby website. This guitar was BARELY played, it was case kept in a studio and only used to record on a couple sessions. The neck is incredibly comfortable and plays like a dream, honestly my favorite guitar I've ever owned.DIMENSIONS
The fanned arrangement of the Multiscale fretboard creates scale lengths for each individual string. We generally call this the "spread". For the GTR range, the spread is as follows:
Six string: 25.5" - 27.5" MultiscaleDue to the increased scale length on the bass side, the tension of the strings increases. We recommend you try dropping a gauge on the bottom end, for example, if you usually use 9-46's, try 9-42's. Body dimensions (thickness): 38mm HypeGTR. For comparison, Jacksons, Ibanez RG, Fender Strats, etc are generally 47mm.Neck shape: 20.3mm @ 1st, 22 @ 17th, D shape with round shoulders. AKA "thin U"HARDWARE
The bridges are custom made for us to exacting tolerances by our partners at Hipshot, using a variety of materials proven for longevity and tone. Hipshot machineheads (locking).TONE
Our own Nunchucker A8 Humbucker (HypeGTR)  features pride of place in the bridge position, with an De La Creme A2 in the neck. Both of these pickups are made to our own specifications by our partners in Korea. 500k pots for volume, a 3 way toggle, and 500k push/pull tone pot for coil splitting. Bone nut.FINISH
All finishes are GLOSS on the bodies. Hypes have satin lacquer necks.
