Stupid neck profile is stupid.

I'd be interested to try it at least. Not a big fan of the aesthetics, though, and the tuning setup looks awkward compared to other designs.

I dig it, I'd love to check one out. I have no use for more than 7 strings though

The hardware is exquisitely machined, but one thing that bugs me is how much string there is between the bridge saddle and the actual tuning tailpiece. That's a LOT of string with at least one more bend than it needs.

I have a strandberg coming sooner or later and after deciding to order I spent some time with a metal wire and some styrofoam blocks, cutting the two Toone neck profiles (TNP and IPNP) - they may look odd, but my foam pseudo-necks suggested they would be very comfortable when playing in a classical style - with your thumb behind the neck.

I like the idea of a headless 8 string fanned fret..but that is just ugly...

The ONLY One on that page I even seen that I'd even consider touching was this though:

I really dug some of his early designs but the newest stuff just looks massively over-engineered. :2c:

EDIT: Also, the headpiece looks so big and elaborate that it kind defeats the purpose of being headless. :2c:

maybe it's cuz i fucked a few too many fat bitches
back in my 'low self esteem' days, but i am
strangely attracted to tosin's 'blur' 8 string.
don't get me wrong, it is indeed as ugly as shannon
suggests. .......but i'm not above it.

I don't care for the strange fretboard. But I can appreciate these things as wonderful works of art.
