"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."
-Cliff Cultreri, DestroyAllGuitars
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.
