Schoenberg ES-000-C Acoustic Guitar, Australian Blackwood & Italian Spruce - Pre-Owned


Sold Make an enquiry


This Schoenberg ES-000-C model acoustic guitar was built by Bruce Sexauer in 2002 and features Australian Blackwood for the back and sides paired with an Italian Spruce top sourced from Rivolta.

Formerly owned by Eric Schoenberg, this guitar is one of only approximately 65 guitars in the Eric Schoenberg (ES) series, built to target Golden Era tone, but the guitar is by no means a Martin clone.

Kim Sherman in our showroom says about this guitar: "This is one of my favorite guitars to come through the shop in a while (based on the tone I like in a guitar). I would love to take it home myself."
