This Greenfield's got so much depth, if you tried to swim to the bottom you'd run out of air long before reaching it. The low-end is seriously fat on this 2010 G2 from Michael Greenfield, in part thanks to Greenfield's eye for great tonewoods, like the rich African Blackwood he used for the back and sides. The tone, as a result, is dark, complex, and mature beyond its years. The German Spruce top offers great projection and showcases Michael's customary Paua and Spalted Beech rosette and scalloped Ebony bridge. This is the rare sort of guitar which thrives under a strong flatpicking attack, but does so with a glassy, polished timbre that sings — and sings loudly. With its bold, muscular build, this guitar imparts authority and presence to even basic chords and passages.
