Rick Toone Meets Cycfi Part 2

Fabio’s Guitar Inside and Out

Stealth radical ergonomic acoustic guitar designed by Rick Toone and Fabio Mittino. Carbon fiber, aircraft aluminum. Element™ extended range single billet machined aircraft aluminum neck. Patented Intonation Cantilever™ individual string bridges. Cycfi Research™ Nu-Multi and XR pickups.

Here are some close-up pictures of the guitar after installing the full Nu-XR system. It was a joy installing the electronics for this guitar. This non-traditional guitar has no cavities at all. It’s just a full wide open space for the components and wiring. I think this is the easiest installation I’ve ever done. Every inch of this guitar is a RADICAL declaration.

There are three original Cycfi XR pickups: two in the neck position and one paired with a Nu-Multi-6. The 5-way switch is wired like that of a Stratocaster for switching the three XR pickups. The active output is routed to channel 9 in the Internal Breakout and then sent through the 19-Pin connector along with the Nu-Multi-6 outputs. An additional standard monophonic jack for the XR output allows easy connection to standard guitar gear. Low-dropout schottky diodes allow both battery and Nexus power for the XR pickups.
