This one is for a local guy. Another one of those "gotta have a guitar exactly like this, I dont want any compromises" and then Ive handed him a Multiscale and it's all "whoa, ok, scrap that, lets have one of those instead!"

I like those guys

Wenge fretboard and neck, with a Swamp Ash body. Blue Kingman inlay.

At first I thought Jake wanted something devilish for the inlay, hence the Diablo. I can up with about ten designs featuring devils tails, horns, all sorts of stuff tacked onto the letters. He didn't like any of them. In the end, I asked him why does he want Diable, but without a devil reference??

"You compared you Multiscale to a Lamborghini, it's the Diablo!"

Ok, I get it now!!

glued down with cyano glue first, then, epoxy tinted brown, just in case. The epoxy fills any gaps there might be...



... and sanded...

So far, the join and grain matching are pretty much perfect. But, its having a carved top, so things will get funky when I start carving wood away. Fingers crossed.

No, you get a point for being the first, right??

Extra three points for guessing where the font came from...

At this stage, it will be the same colours as the RR bass. Might change it up a bit to suit these timbers though, eg: a touch lighter in the middle and darker on the burst edge.

If you go on stewmac.com they have a fret scale calculator. It's really just a case of asking it to give you one scale for the top of the fretboard and another for the bottom. Then mark the 2 scales on the sides of the fretboard when you've shaped it and draw a line between them to cut for the frets.

Wow. That sounds too simple, but it sounds like it'd definitely work. Now I'd just have to figure out the bridge, since I dont think you can buy one that staggered right

What exactly is a multiscale fretboard , I really cant grasp the concept.

"Ormsby Multiscale TM fretboards feature the best of both worlds. Added bass string length (generally 27.5") gives a fatter, tighter, faster attack, and the treble side (generally 25.5") offers easier bending, vibrato, and 'shredding'. The fact the fanned layout of the frets matches the natural arc of your forearm whilst playing, contributes to easier bar chords, more accurate sweep runs, and less wrist and tendon complaints."

Oh yay another delicious Ormsby being cooked up

Perry, sorry if it's any inconvienience but do you have a link to the RR bass? I was caught up in the hype over it originally but i've not seen it completed

Thats one perfectly good way of doing it. Its not how i do it, I add a very small amount of compensation (moved fret positions relative to nut and bridge) in as well. Really, it's just me being overly picky though.

Not until its released in the first magazine sorry. Here are some sound bytes of Kelly talking about it though:
Kelly Garni talks about his Ormsby Bass

We got 50 hours of footage on HD 1080, and there are 5 hours of talking to go, before it can all be editted together for a dvd

hey ormsby, what are the advantages and disadvantages of having the straight fret on a multiscale at a lower fret vs a higher fret?

I like less angle at the nut, more at the bridge. No other reason other than that. Everyone does it differently.

yeah i was going to say that but i figured that you would probably still be able to set the intonation accurately without the compensation. Although it's really the attention to detail like that which makes your guitars so awesome of course.
