Welcome to Ormsby Guitar's Official Website
Welcome to the official Ormsby Guitars website, Australia's premium electric solid body guitar manufacturer.
Multi award winning luthier, Perry Ormsby, has been manufacturing his custom hand-made instruments in Perth for over eight years. Located in Kenwick, just south of the Cannington commercial district, Ormsby Guitars is a local success story, striving forward despite the global downturn. All instruments are custom made from a variety of exotic and Australian timbers, our own hand wound pickups, and top shelf hardware.
The majority of instruments are handmade to order, to suit a variety of different music tastes and styles, and include standard scale length, baritone and Multiscale™ guitars or basses. We also sell Standard Series instruments and our own Handwound Pickups through our network of dealers. These guitars still have that well known 'Ormsby Vibe' and tone but are without the expensive frills. The pickups are all handmade in our Perth studio, and include 'Handwound Humbuckers', 'Scatterwound Singlecoils' and 'Pimpin' P'90s'. Coming soon are a range of our own custom machined hardware to really give your guitar that custom feel.
Not to forget Perry also runs guitar making courses, where you'll build an electric guitar from scratch, and take it home with you. For some, this is an opportunity to fulfill a life time dream. Check out the link for full details and galleries.
So, if you've been looking for that special guitar, pickups, or just a general guitar service or restoration, maybe a trip down to see us may be in order. See you soon :)
