Description

Our latest Halfling from the Ribbecke Master Series comes with an inspiration from the Dreadnought guitar for added bass and punch, not to mention projection. Dubbed “Whisper Gray” for the translucent finish on the Red Cedar top, this Ribbecke has Honduran Walnut back and sides (renowned for its density), Tom’s asymmetrical carved Halfling top and bracing, and a B-Band UST pickup system. Compared to the other Master Series guitars we’ve had in, this one has an extra heaping dose of woody punch that shows up especially in the mids, and a sweetly dialed in string-to-string balance that feels at home for both flatpicked runs and fingerstyle arrangements.
The neck is finished in satin, and feels smooth and personal the moment you take a hold. Standard 25.4” scale with a 1.75” nut and a 12.5’ fretboard radius, bone nut and saddle, and a thin, removable Ebony pickguard round out the portrait of the Gray Whisper: smooth operator, put together, elegant at a glance and at a touch.
