THE PINNACLE FINGERSTYLE ACOUSTIC GUITAR has been developed specifically for modern fingerstylists, tappers and 'heavy wood' players.
While looking much like a regular guitar on the outside, it has been completely redesigned inside - to optimize fingerstyle performance in open tunings.
This extremely versatile Schwartz Guitar is balanced, responsive and expressive, with a pianoesque sound and a wide dynamic range from soft to loud.
Except for the pinless bridge, the ordinary facade of the Pinnacle gives no hint of the extraordinary cutting-edge performance you'll enjoy with this guitar.
The innovative power plant of this guitar is the very light but extremely strong carbon fibre-reinforced, lattice-braced soundboard. The light weight allows the top to respond easily, even with the reduced tension of open tunings. The strength means the guitar can be played hard without 'overdriving' the top. This is combined with a longer scale length of 26 inches, equal to the long classical scale of 660 mm, so the low E string can be tuned down to an A (with medium strings) and have enough tension to be played and produce a rich sound.
A common problem that fingerstyle players face is the variations in action that occur when going from one tuning to the next. This has been eliminated in the Pinnacle with my unique double-walled side design.
The double wall makes the sides of the guitar very stiff, without adding much weight. The added strength of the sides greatly reduces the flexibility of the box, which translates into no movement between tunings of differing tensions.
