    Hey guys,
    Just posting a clip of the guitar Rick Toone built for me. It's truly a unique instrument. Probably the most acoustically present electric guitar that i've ever played. Sustain for days with tons of clarity. The body design is also phenomenal. Extreme comfortable and the neck angle couldn't be more perfect. Good stuff! More info over at RICK TOONE | LUTHIER!

    The fan doesn't look as drastic as some guitars. Very interesting.

    As always, great playing and god is that a good tone.

    Looks like the 7th and 6th string cab be dropped by taking the capo off, kind of reminds me of those Kabuki basses.

    Rad video!

    Nice, however what I really wanna see/hear is that LACS 8 string semi-hollow beast posted rather a while back now.

    That thing is sick. Rick Toone's ideas are revolutionary.

    The more I looked at this guitar, the more it grew on me. To me, it looks like a variation of the Klein guitar, but better. I really dig this a lot. Toone is an amazing luthier. I'd love a guitar from him.

    If you squint, it resembles Pac-Man. That however makes it even more awesome :)

    If you watch him play his Strandberg live, he sometimes will put a capo on the 2nd frets of the lowest 2 strings.

    As per the original post, AWESOME!
