Halfling SB

Designed with electric blues, rock and jazz players in mind, this revolutionary guitar has, at its heart, a rather sophisticated interior build that is a marriage of archtop and semi-hollow build techniques applied to a body shape that most definitely has some DNA from the mighty Les Paul, the 335, the Testadura and the ES175.

This guitar utilizes technologies of the Testadura instruments from Toms private practice; in the anchoring of the bridge and tailpiece into a sub top Rosewood or Wenge block. It has the structure and rock stability at high volume of a true chambered electric. It has the bite and high-end crunch of a solid body but has the enhanced integrity and presence in the mids and bass of the Testadura hollow-body. The top and chambering is asymmetrical and if you tap on both sides of the bridge you will hear the octave separation of the chambers.

It features a 1 3/4" nut and a 25" scale with a carbon fiber reinforced neck and a two way adjustable truss rod. It has a laminated headstock, as in all Ribbecke products, and has a fit and joined neck. It has a top which is designed to be slightly microphonic. The percussive effect created from this top that truly defines its characteristic sound.

The chambered electric Halfling™ is built in a sandwich style with laminated sides. Pickups can be a combination of P90s or Humbuckers. Controls are non stack-pot style with tone and volume controls for each of the pickups with a standard three way selector switch. These can be ordered in stack-pot controls as well. The jack on the back is another innovative feature. The neck is a bit closer in shape to the traditional Les Paul.
