Description

Sheldon Schwartz is building some of the most unique and astounding guitars we have seen! This particular Oracle is made in Palo Escrito Rosewood, and while not as well known as a tonewood, it gives its more commonly used Rosewood brethren a run for their money. The Italian Moon Spruce top is perfection, harvested according to the traditional methods of waiting for the proper moon phase to yield the least sap content in the timbers.

Every decision in the design of this Oracle was made with the player in mind, from the soft cutaway to the extremely comfortable Arm Bevel, the off-center soundhole--even the satin neck make this guitar a dream to play. Sheldon's unique voicing and Carbon Fibe-reinforced lattice bracing system help set the voice of the guitar apart from the field. It is incredibly powerful and responsive, even to the lightest touch, and warmth, evenness, and sumptuous tone define the experience of playing the Oracle. This is a guitar that is well suited for modern fingerstyle arrangements, but can also pick louder and more vigorously than you'd believe possible. But don't worry: hundreds of hours later, the Evo Gold frets will hardly show any wear at all--and if you'd ever like to experiment with different pickups, Schwartz built in an access panel on end graft of the guitar, so getting into the body of the Oracle is immensely easy.

The guitars we have had in from Sheldon have been unwaveringly amazing! They are always a joy to play, and the offset soundhole really puts the big voice right in the player's ear. You're other guitars might start languishing in their cases once you start playing this Oracle!
 
This is a great guitar, so much so that I even improvised on my normal tune with it. I really like the modern look, and the playability of the neck is just right. Sounds quite nice in alternate tunings, too!
