1997 Tom Ribbecke Solid Body Guitar

ribbecke 002

Superlative hand built solid body guitar by Tom Ribbecke. The label is under the rear trem route and dated Sept 1997, SN 290. This guitar is in original condition and is close to mint condition! It’s not the first time we’ve had this solid body guitar in our possession at Maverick Music. In fact, we’ve owned this guitar twice now! We bought the guitar from the original owner in 2008 and just bought it back from a private collector!

This 1997 Solid Body guitar has hardly been played and there is zero playwear on the fingerboard and frets. It even comes complete with the original Harptone hard shell case! Tom’s work is in high demand with most of his output being sold with a long lead time, and commissions start in the $25k range!

The body is solid mahogany with a very flamey maple top. Take a look at the 2nd picture to see what we mean.

Check out these features on this Tom Ribbecke guitar:

  • 21 fret neck with a very high quality ebony fingerboard
  • Bound neck & headstock
  • Bound body
  • Ebony headstock overlay with solid ebony truss rod cover
  • 3 X Bartolini pickups, one humbucker & two single coil all wired to two pull push pots
  • Wilkinson trem system
  • Gold Schaller mini 6-in-line tuners with solid ebony buttons
  • Solid ebony backplate & rear control route cover
  • So much more…

This is a stunning solid body guitar in every respect! Perfectly set up & restrung with D’Addario EXL 110 strings!
