“To play a Schaefer guitar is a true pleasure. This is a wonderful instrument – lightweight and effortless to play. The neck is extremely fast and comfortable. This guitar has a great sound both acoustically and amplified. It is so comfortable to play, I don¹t have to think about adjusting my technique to accommodate it, and that is real musical freedom. The Swingmaster has performed beautifully in all types of gigs from duos to symphony concerts. It is a real privilege to own and play an instrument of this caliber. I think that the Schaefer guitar is a tremendous value in a hand carved archtop.
Thanks Ed for a great guitar, your friendship, and involving me in all aspects of the build development. This is an instrument I will treasure for many years to come.”
