DESCRIPTION:

"Each instrument I create is hand built to meet your specific needs as a musician. This is a time and labor intensive process, performed by me to the limit of my art. An instrument will only leave the shop after I am fully confident it is an integrated, functional organism." - Rick Toone

Here is a quick survey of some of  Rick Toone's innovations:

Trapezoid Neck Profile™ and Intersecting Neck Profile™
These innovations are both radical departures from conventional neck shapes, created to maximize biomechanical leverage in the human hand. Both The Trapezoidal Neck Profile™ and the Intersecting Neck Profile™ are divided into distinct plane surfaces, which provide broad support areas for your thumb. In contrast to a conventional rounded profile, your thumb is highly stable, and leverage improved. The Intersecting Neck Profile™ is designed for musicians with specific hand shapes or leverage needs. This profile is variable and can help you compensate for your style of play.

Neutral Tension Bridge™
This system eliminates string tension on acoustic instrument soundboards, allowing reduced bracing to capture and transmit full string vibration.

Intonation Adjustable Nut™ and Intonation Cantilever Bridge™
The Intonation Adjustable Nut™ is capable of accurately setting intonation and string height per individual string and works in conjunction with Toone's Intonation Cantilever Bridge™ and precise body-mounted tuning mechanisms. As a combined system, this integrated hardware fully controls tuning and intonation over the entire length of the string.

Rick Toone's instruments frequently utilize headless tuning and fan fret systems.
