Description

Tom Ribbecke’s thinline Testadura model is designed with variety and dynamism in mind, and is equally at home with both Jazz and Rock. This beauty from 2003 boasts Indian Rosewood sides paired with a Bigleaf Maple back and carved Sitka Spruce top, and Tom Holmes PAF humbuckers. In both the body and neck Tom installed carbon graphite for stability and improved stiffness-to-weight ratio. The setup is butter smooth on this one, it really plays itself.

The Testadura is a seminal design from Tom Ribbicke, one of the innovators in archtop and electric world. Semi-hollow design, smaller than a 335 with a nice amount of air in the voice as well as straight up power. It’s a guitar that can do anything from blues to jazz to rock. Have at it.
