Michael Greenfield's exquisitely crafted guitars have ended up in the hands of players like Andy McKee, and it's not hard to see why. With a full scale length, and a body size slightly larger than a standard OM, Michael describes the GF model as "the essential Greenfield guitar". It's capable of tackling just about anything, but notably delightful as a fingerstyle soloist's instrument.
Alpine spruce, harvested at a time during the lunar cycle when sap is low, forms the soundboard, while a set of richly red African padauk forms the back and sides. The treble strings respond easily and quickly, and sustain with simple clarity, while the bass and mids bloom and ring out with rich overtones. Played with the fingers, there's clear note separation. Use a flatpick, and you get a satisfyingly crisp attack.
The Florentine cutaway is visually matched with a distinctively curved bridge, and a proprietary rosette of spalted beech and paua centers the whole design. This guitar ships out in a one-of-a-kind custom flight case with paint spatter design.
