Thomas Ribbecke Halfling Archtop Guitar Red Sunburst 2009

This 2009 Thomas Ribbecke Halfling archtop guitar was built especially for the 2009 Montreal Guitar Show, as an entry into the Red Collection grouping. It’s built with a carved Spruce top, carved Spalted Flame Maple back and matching sides, and Maple neck with an unbound Ebony fingerboard. The neck is a multi-scale with the center of its length being about 26 inches. There’s a large round soundhole on the top located on the upper bass bout next to the fingerboard and Bartolini pickup. Ebony is used for other components including the bridge, pickguard, tailpiece and truss rod cover. Mother of Pearl is used for the headstock Ribbecke and Halfling logos.

SOLD! Second Life MasterClone Banjo 2014

SOLD!  Second Life MasterClone Banjo 2014

Banjo-maker Carl Arcand routinely restores older banjos to give them a ‘second life’ from his Eastern Townships shop in Ulverton, Quebec. This fine example Second Life MasterClone Banjo is still archived on his site. This instrument is assumed to be based on a 60s or 70s Gibson TB-250 ‘donor-banjo’ pot with flathead bronze tone ring and fitted to an Arcand handmade replica neck. The resurrection work was completed and the banjo first sold in 2014. This Second Life MasterClone Banjo is certainly equal or superior to any 70’s original Gibson. It is what we would call a RB-250 Mastertone “clone” banjo or “Master-Clone” banjo.

SOLD!!! Godin A5 Fretless 5-String Bass Natural 2006

SOLD!!! Godin A5 Fretless 5-String Bass Natural 2006

The Godin fretless 5-string Bass body is made of two pieces of silver leaf maple, chambered and capped with spruce. The neck bolts on, and uses rock maple plus an ebony fingerboard on the fretless version. The Fretted version gets a rosewood fingerboard. The bridge matches the fingerboard, and on this older example uses an acoustic-guitar style pin bridge. Godin is very well acquainted with using piezo pickups and have devised a very usable and unobtrusive control layout next to the fingerboard. Access to the battery for the preamp is on the back.

SOLD!!! Michael Greenfield G-1 Cutaway Steel String Guitar Brazilian, 2002

SOLD!!! Michael Greenfield G-1 Cutaway Steel String Guitar Brazilian, 2002

The Greenfield G-1 is a very responsive guitar, quick to react to even the lightest touch and lends itself to many different styles of music. It has a very focused yet open sound with a tight responsive bass, transparent mids and thick, clear, ringing highs. Primarily intended as a fingerstyle guitar, it is also superb for light strumming or acoustic jazz.
