We've received our build spot for April, which will include the Goliaths from run 4, run 5 shortly after, and then run 6 commencing as projected. From June we now have a monthly build spot at World Music, meaning runs should have production dates as set at the time of pre-order and our dealers can more readily get stock.
Hipshot have begun creating our new hardware (see photos) although this was a prototype to check everything prior to signing off. Minor changes to the intonation screw position but otherwise it's pretty close. Tightening up the front a little too so it's not so long. The tuning range and intonation range is massive to allow for you guys to really get crazy on string gauges. It's really comfortable and durable. The locking headpiece is also Hipshot now. If you've seen their usual pieces, they are really bulky. We've reduced weight and length by 75%. This also allows it to move back a tiny bit to make truss rod adjustment easier. We will have some spares of each Goliath model but not a huge amount so keep your eye out around here. We will do another Goliath run in the future but nothing is firm yet with when that will happen.
We will be updating our web store very soon with all our new merchandise (see below) which includes our awesome new custom straps. Vouchers from run 1 can be used on these and you'll also be able to add items like this when finalising your bill on new runs so you'll be rockin' the coolest in Ormsby goods.
Catch ya soon!
