More about the collaboration:
Eric Schoenberg's influence on guitar marries traditional fingerstyle playing to classic ragtime and walking basslines. His "Fingerpicking Beatles" book is considered an essential text for modern fingerstyle players. Mr. Schoenberg prefers the 12-fret cutaway because he believes the 12-fret neck joint gives the guitars a gutsier voice, yet the cutaway is not so deep that it takes away from the sound. As Schoenberg describes it, the Recording King O and OO guitars offer the best of both a 12-fret and a 14-fret neck joint, thanks to the cutaway. Schoenberg explains his decision to work with Recording King on these guitars in this way: "When the (Recording King) ROS-626 model came out, I saw it and said, the quality is excellent, the style is great; a collaboration on something similar is just what I?ve been looking for."
