Description

Rare and otherwise unobtainable guitars? That's why we got in this business in the first place, and this T.J. Thompson-built Schoenberg Soloist is our mission statement to a T. Sporting a gorgeous set of Indian Rosewood for the back and sides and Sitka Spruce for the top, this guitar packs a fiendish amount of punch into a comfortable OM-size package. This is one of the 150 guitars which Eric Schoenberg designed and T.J. Thompson crafted the various parts before sending the instrument to Martin for final assembly and finishing.


Each Schoenberg Soloist from 1990 to 1994 is a resounding example of T.J.'s meticulous craftsmanship: this guitar has a crisp, focused voice which gives fingerpicking arrangements richness and clarity--but if flatpicking is more to your liking, this Soloist has a lively response to both strumming and lead work. Featuring a soft V-shape neck, your left hand won't wear out any time soon; and that's a good thing, because you won't want to put this guitar down once you pick it up. Speaking of which, this guitar also comes with a dynamite Highlander IP-1 pickup, so no worries when it comes time to gig out.


Here's an additional demo with our own Al Pettewayhttps://youtu.be/lEyWB9UdvGs

The Soloist was perhaps the first cutaway OM guitar design, something that is now extremely popular in the guitar world. This one built from the time when T.J. Thompson had a hand in the shop, and it is just sublime. Warm, powerful, inspiring.
 
A perfect guitar for Fingerstyle. Every part of the frequency response is even and controlled. There is still plenty of bass, but it's nice and tight while the trebles are clear and full. It's very much like some of the best Golden Age Martin guitars that I've played.
