Started in the Littleton, Mass. Schoenberg shop 20 years ago, and finished here by Schoenberg luthier Sparky Kramer, making it a twenty-year-old almost new guitar. It is cocobolo back & sides, European spruce top, 12-fret cutaway with solid headstock and pyramid bridge. As with all Schoenbergs, it is based strongly on vintage specs, with an added perspective of the player's needs. The tone is particularly strong and clear, as befitting a lightly built 12-fret cocobolo guitar. There is one small area of damage on the back, expertly repaired by Chris Berkov.
