Rick Toone Blur 8-String


Luthier Rick Toone showed this head-turning new Blur 8-string that he built for Tosin Abasi of Animals as Leaders. It features a swamp ash body, Capoble integrated capo, aluminum neck, Delrin fretboard, Bare Knuckle and Lace pickups, and Boone & Townsend Intonation Cantilever Bridge and tuners.


TOONE & TOWNSEND will occupy booth 1219 located in Exhibit Hall E at NAMM 2012. Sharing booth space with us is Strandberg Guitarworks. Ola and I thought ours would be a great pairing.

Come explore leading edge guitar innovation!


Intonation adjustable nut for guitar. Simple intonation adjustment allows real-time pitch correction. This ability creates a palette of options for tempered tuning, from traditional guitar dissonance to piano-like chord accuracy. You have control. Patented (US 8,76,559).

    "I spent about 2 hours with it last night without an amp (I had a hard time putting it down). The continuity of the tone across and up and down the fret board was impressive...great chord sound."

    Al Shaffer
    T2 'Buckskin'

Designed for headless acoustic or electric guitars with body mounted tuner, including tremolo. Compatible with ABM, Bondy, Steinberger, Strandberg, and TOONE & TOWNSEND headless tuner.

Set string height with a simple screw turn.

Use with conventional (parallel fret) as well as multi-scale (fanned fret) instruments. Replaces traditional nut or zero fret. Multi-scale fretboard design explains layout for new multi-scale instruments.

Machined to aerospace tolerances from lightweight aircraft grade aluminum. Anodized in a wide palette of color options. Stainless steel actuation components for a lifetime of smooth precision. Titanium string contact.

• Traditional and multi-scale (fanned fret) capable
• Steel, bronze and nylon strings
• Plain or ball end strings
• Unlimited modular string configuration

STATUS: Debut NAMM 2012

Scale drawings below will make it easier for you to integrate the hardware into your own guitar designs.

All components are drawn actual size. Set your printer to "do not scale" and the images will size correctly. If the scale box reproduces exactly 1" (25.4 mm) square, then scale is accurate (1:1).

Modular system is capable of nearly any string configuration. Shown 6-string guitar for simplicity. 7-string and 8-string guitar systems are identical, just add additional string modules.



Bridge for guitar or bass strings. Incredibly nuanced tone lives where the proprietary string contact captures upper register harmonics, driving string vibration directly into the soundboard of your instrument. Patented (US 8,76,559).

    "(Sketch) has the loudest acoustic presence of any electric guitar that I've played. Tons of tonal clarity, note definition, and sustain."

    Tosin Abasi
    Animals As Leaders

Optimized for acoustic, archtop, and solid body instruments. Use as an anchor bridge with headstock tuners. Or use as a pass-through bridge with body mounted tuners, including ABM, Steinberger, and TOONE & TOWNSEND headless tuner.

String height adjustment is a twist of your guitar pick. Intonation is simple, and precise via stainless steel actuation.

Lightweight aircraft grade aluminum is machined to precision tolerances. Anodized in a wide palette of matte color options.
