    Malaysian blackwood - with interesting grain stripes and a flash of orange-coloured sapwood to the bottom centre of the back. The sides are lined with bloodwood. The bindings are also bloodwood.

  • Comments:

    This is the top of the Philip Woodfield range of concert guitars designed with power and volume in mind for the professional or ensemble player, giving a rich, full yet clear sound. Players such as Raymond Burley speak very highly about the volume, balance and sustain of the lattice-fronted Grand Concert models.
    These are certainly strong instruments with a pleasing, near-traditional sound; much more so than most lattice guitars. They also respond well when played softly and sensitively. All together an impressive concert guitar with fine materials and striking appearance.
