Here we have a special guitar if ever there was one. The Ribbecke Chambered Solid Body Halfling has already taken it's place among the finest electric guitars of the era. This one was made in the Ribbecke Custom Shop and since being the first one made it is regarded as a "prototype". First and foremost , it has beautifully executed "Feather" fretmarkers done in Abalone, Pearl and Silver. It also differs from the standard issue in that it has a Nitrocellulose lacquer finish and has twin Duncan "Jeff Beck" humbuckers with a push-pull coils tap on each individual pickup (on the tone pots). This is a true "museum quality" instrument in every respect. It has Tom Ribbeckes "second to none" design and build quality. Remember, this is a RIBBECKE guitar, not a Ribbecke Guitar Co. guitar.
