​ is always pushing the boundaries of what the guitar can do, and he needs an instrument that can keep up with his creativity and technique. “A good friend of mine turned me on to Ormsby guitars and I was immediately intrigued,” Cooley says. “The guitar played great and had a very cutting-edge and innovative look. After speaking with Perry I knew this was the right move for me. Finally a guitar builder with the vision to go where no-one else has ever been, and the balls to do it!”

“Rusty and I are on the same wavelength when it comes to pushing the boundaries of guitar design,” luthier Perry Ormsby says. “When we began designing Rusty’s new guitar, we spent hours on Skype discussing everything from upper fret access to headstock shape to the perfect control location, to shared inspirations like Randy Rhoads. This is an instrument that really captures the excitement and passion of both playing and making guitars.”

“I’ve always likened my guitars to high-performance cars like a Lamborghini, but what we’re working with now is clearly alien technology,” Cooley says.

After a fantastic response when announced at the Winter NAMM Show in Anaheim, California, and overwhelming aclaim and demand on social media, we are proud to present, the RC-One GTR Series.

We've made some minor changes to the original prototype released at Winter NAMM, 2019. In the interest of transparency, here they are:
1. The end of the fretboard, past the 27th fret, has been reduced to bring the pickup closer to the last fret.
2. The bridge pickup has been moved towards the bridge a few mm. Changes 1+2 give a slightly wider tonal range.
3. The locking nut has been revised and improved from the original groundbreaking design. The screw mounts have been relocated, allowing a lower profile overall. And, furthermore, the finish will be black for this part rather than the polished brass of the prototype
