Hi all, I just came back from a trip with the family in Australia. A really rewarding experience but quite a strenuous one travelling such distances with young children. In any case I managed to go to a music store while in Perth, it was Kosmic if I remember correctly, to see what I could find there. I managed to get there half an hour before they closed so I didn't have time to test many things. There were some new awesome Ibanez guitars I wanted to try but since they had a few Ormsby guitars and I was interested in those, I asked to play one of those. They also had the elusive Peavey Invective so I was able to kill two birds with one stone. Obligatory pic of me playing the guitar: My opinion of the Ormsby, really weird at the beginning with the multiscale. It took me a about 10 minutes to get more comfortable with it. Nice overall aesthetics but a lot of small finishing details I saw. I'm not sure if these are chambered but it still seemed quite heavy as a guitar. I didn't like the neck carve as much. I don't know if it's thickness, shoulders or carve but it felt thick. Not unplayable by any means but I was expecting a thinner profile. And the satin back of neck was not bad but I didn't feel a positive effect over a good gloss neck. The pickups were nice but sounded a bit thin. I suppose they are better suited for downtuning as this was a 6 string guitar. They sounded clear and powerful but I would have preferred a bit more meat into the sound. The store had a Mesa Boogie Dual Rec Multiwatt, a Triple Crown 50 and the Invective as big amps. I thought I'd go with the Invective as it's difficult to find plus I've been playing a 5150II for a while so I thought I could make it work easier. I was mistaken hahaha. I did play it not too loud as I was in the store but I wasn't impressed. I didn't have time to fiddle with all options but the clean didn't sound that great, the crunch setting was meh and the the lead did sound good after a bit of fiddling but not much better than the 5150II lead. Again I didn't have time to try the onboard boost and the other functions on the clean channel the amp had but I can say that both have cured me of any GAS I had for an Ormsby and an Invective. Well maybe not for an Ormsby all together but it did show me it was not an instant love for the instrument.
