Description

Tom Ribbecke needs no introduction here; the work is proof positive. We’ve landed a brand new 15 inch archtop with Tom’s latest compliant rim feature that’s a breeze to play and offers a warm balanced response both acoustically and amplified. Bigleaf Maple back and sides with a Red Cedar top, Koa bindings, and a tasty red Nitro finish. Floating Bartolini pickup with volume and tone knobs under the pickguard, and Tom’s offset soundhole which enhances the bass response and really lets the Cedar top/ compliant rim sing.

Tom Ribbecke is an innovator in addition to be one of the best longtime makers of archtop instruments. Here he has done something new with his compliant rim technology. If you look closely you’ll see that the outer perimeter of the top is individual pieces of wood turned in various directions to enhance the movement of the top. It has a fuller sound and more bass response that is palpable.
