Details

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 delicately figured sapele forms the back and sides. Fans of mahogany would do well to consider this less common tonewood. Noted for having a warmth and midrange focus like mahogany's, many players find it has a boost of treble clarity and sparkle. For fingerstyle players, there is delectable note separation and bell-like sustain, and for strummers, a nice crisp attack and big, open sound.

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.
