Schwartz Guitars - Hand crafted guitars, handmade guitars, custom acoustic guitars, and hand built acoustic guitars

Welcome to Schwartz Guitars ... The Art of Sound

I'm glad you found your way here. My name is Sheldon Schwartz.
I hope you'll find all the information you need about me and my hand crafted acoustic guitars
so you can make an informed choice on your next six (or seven) stringed acquisition.
I've been building guitars full time since 1992.  During that time, I have developed three models:
the Advanced Auditorium, the Pinnacle Fingerstyle Guitar with 6 or 7 strings, and the futuristic Oracle Fingerstyle Guitar.

Here are VIDEOS of some fantastic players rocking their CUSTOM MADE SCHWARTZ!

Here is an article from May 15, 2013 on the website How to Spend It by the Financial Times of London.
It features my British Dealer, The Acoustic Music Company, and highlights the Schwartz Oracle he presently has for sale.

The Sugoi Model is a Schwartz SJ, modified to meet Masa Sumide’s specs.
I met Masa in 2007 and got to spend some time with him one on one to discuss his playing needs.
From that meeting, Masa decided that he liked the feel of the longer scale and the drop top arm rest,
but needed a smaller body size, so these features were incorporated into the SJ.

Masa used this guitar to record his latest CD, Believe in Me.
This recording features Masa's brilliant composing,
his virtuoso playing and some intense grooves.
I believe! This is a must have for all fingerstyle fans.
