The original Cutaway OM
An innovation that started a revolution.
It started with a request from guitarist Eric Schoenberg, who had been dreaming of an OM with a soft, minimalist cutaway. Dana built prototypes, later partnered with Eric to found Schoenberg Guitars, then worked closely with C.F. Martin to co-produce the Schoenberg Soloist, the first cutaway guitar to come out of Martin’s fabled Nazareth workshop. Perhaps more importantly, the original Soloist helped re-launch the long-forgotten OM, now the world’s second most popular steel-string guitar. Our Soloist Features Madagascar Rosewood back and sides, Ziricote binding and 1920s-style Pyramid Bridge – otherwise sparsely adorned save for Dana’s trademark slotted triangle heel inlay. Few guitars lay stronger claim to the term “Modern Classic”.
