  • Comments:

    This is a very near new condition guitar from Dominique Field. With an order list of approximately 15 years, his recent instruments have been very difficult to find and are sought-after by players and collectors alike. They are amongst the very strongest sound-projecting yet traditionally-built concert guitars available anywhere in the world. Their sound is very even, pure and focussed allowing the accomplished player to find his / her own colours. This is a rare opportunity to have a highly-refined concert guitar from a maker whose reputation for impeccable quality of construction is rarely equalled.
