Description

This guitar was custom made for Eric Schoenberg himself by Julius Borges. It features gorgeous Brazilian Rosewood and Adirondack Spruce in a timeless 00 cutaway design. The lightly-built body is extremely responsive; reminiscent of an early 1900's Martin. With a wider fingerboard (1 7/8" nut) and 12-fret neck, this guitar is the fingerpicker's dream machine, perfect for Rags, Old Time, Doc Watson tunes or Appalachian ballads, and you can rely on the included K&K Pure Mini pickup to translate those tunes to the stage!

The magical thing about this guitar is that it vibrates in your arms like it's 80 years old. Julius Borges crafted this one for Eric, and hit a home run in the process. The woods are top notch, the appointments are gorgeous, and the wider board provides plenty of room to roam. The 42-Style markers, Abalone trim, headstock, and rosette are wonderfully executed. Plus the shorter scale makes bending notes a breeze!
 
I've always loved the Schoenberg guitars and I am also a huge fan of Julius Borges as a builder. There aren't that many of this model out there and this is one of the best, so don't hesitate to give it a try. It's got a warm, played-in sound that you'll love.
