GTR Run 10 will mark the first time that Ormsby is offering a GTR version of the Futura. The SX Carved Top one of the first models Ormsby ever offered, a guitar that ones polarized opinions with its unique features and ergonomics. Of course both Futura and SX Carved top have the well-known multiscale.
The Futura has a relatively small, light weight mahogany body and neck, accompanied with an ebony fretboard and the traditional Multiscale fretboard design. It is balanced with a flowing forearm and belly curves for comfort, and a non-intrusive side mount jack so that it can be played in all positions comfortably.
