Description

The Oracle design by Sheldon Schwartz is one of the most exciting and original we've seen. This beauty in Brazilian Rosewood and highly figured Bearclaw Sitka Spruce incorporates a wide array of elements including triple offset soundholes, carbon fibre-reinforced lattice-braced soundboard, double walled side construction, carbon fibre reinforced "X" braced back and a 26 inch scale. Additional features include a beveled cutaway, the bent wood style arm rest, a 5pc laminated neck with 24 frets, a rear access panel.

Now for the sound... listen close and you can probably hear it wherever you are. This is one loud and strong guitar! The Oracle speaks like a Piano, with big, clear notes and tremendous bass response. The offset soundholes insure the player gets an earful and what you'll hear is a joyful noise! Light players will be rewarded with big sound and heavy handed players have met their match. The Oracle by Sheldon Schwartz is simply remarkable!

I travel to most of the custom Luthiery shows around the world and play many great guitars. But I distinctly remember playing an Oracle for the first time and loving it! Very few designs are this exciting and really work like this design does. What you have here is a cannon. A big, strong guitar that delivers sweet sounds and a heck of a lot of attitude should you ask for it. Percussive players with love the power and gentle players will love the volume that you get with even an easy touch.
 
A very interesting design with lots of big bass response that should please folks looking for that grand piano sound from an acoustic guitar.
