This guitar is truly remarkable. At just 15" it's small and compact but has an amazing sound due to it's Halfling™ top. It's similar in size and style to a Les Paul. For more information about our revolutionary Halfling™ design click here.

The 15cc is named after one of our dealers; Cliff Cultreri. We wanted to honor Cliff because he is an amazing man and a great friend to all of us at RGC.

This is the first 15cc guitar we've built. As the prototype for a new design Tom has spent many hours working closely with our brilliant Foreman, Mike, to design, build and perfect this guitar.

Although this prototype is sold we are taking orders for the inaugural five guitars. Please email me if you have any questions or if you would like to purchase this rare guitar.
