Product Description

A whole new dimension for us, and a plan that started forty years ago and is finally seeing daylight, this newest of Schoenberg guitars has a fully hand-carved maple back with a flat top. We started with the Quartet and added the carved back, not really knowing how it would turn out. It is now a couple weeks old and maybe the most exciting guitar we've done in ages. It's a very light construction, by our builder, Robert Anderson, beautifully carved, with a gorgeous light sunburst french polish finish, twelve-frets to-the-body with a cutaway. From the designer's point-of-view it is a combination of very tradition concepts, combined in a completely new way. The resulting tone is surprisingly sweet, powerful and musical, with a gorgeous treble voice and deep and rich low end.

The spruce top has an amazing grain figure that is brought out in a wonderful way by the staining in the sunburst. The headstock veneer is a deep faux tortoise shell with the intricate logo in ivoroid inlaid therein. The tortoise-shell is a continuing element, being used for the top & back binding, the rosette and end piece as well as the peghead veneer. The whole guitar comes in at 3 3/4 pounds, incredibly light for a modern instrument of this size.
