    Hi!
    I've designed a new guitar with Rick Toone (and now I will have to sell my previous one, a custom S2... so if somebody is interested check Reverb in the near future).
    It feature all the ideas I came up with during the last seven years: a totally hollow body, made by two carbon fiber sheets, an armrest, "normal" tuning machines (no headless) and as light as possible.
    Neck is 22 frets made of aluminum and can be easily detached to stow the guitar in a handbag. Very important for me, as I travel light on tour and I can fit everything in one trolley bag to take always with me.
    The electronic part is made by Cycfi Research Inc.
    It has three XR quadcoils pickups and one NU polyphonic pickup at the bridge. They are very hi-fi sounding, and they are perfect with my music style (I was using Q-Tuners on my other guitar, so I'm quite accustomed to this sound). If I plug a Lemo Cable, I can use the polyphonic NU. In this way I can process each strings in a different way... a lot of options, everything is still very new for me.
    I made two videos.
    On "Dance of Litha" I use the normal XR pickup at the bridge, and on the other one the NU pickup with a couple of Eventide VST plugins.
    I use CGADEG tuning.
    Hope you'll like it!

    Interesting.

    I hear a Robert Fripp vibe
