Cobalt Blue Halfling™ Pin Bridge Guitar

Introducing the Ribbecke Master Series; a collection of rare instruments which are hybridized between Tom’s private shop and RGC. Each one is unique; a new design, a series of customizations or simply one of Tom's favorite instruments.

Cobalt Pin Bridge

This guitars has our characteristic sustain and energy storage in the top as well as enhanced dimensional acoustics. This is the perfect Steel String guitar for the discriminating player!

When we decided to build the first five inaugural Pin Bridge Guitars we knew they were going to be beautiful; both in build and voice. As Tom started the color work on this guitar he wanted to bring out all of the variations in the rosewood body and sides. To do this he decided to finish the top with a deep, cobalt blue. As a result this guitar is simply stunning.

"I was particularly impressed by the way that notes appeared to continue their dynamic development even after my fingers had left the string. Combined with the rich bass, great clarity, and expansive volume, the guitar offered a sonic experience quite unlike any other instrument I've had the pleasure to make music with."
-Teja Gerken, Acoustic Guitar Magazine
