  • Comments:

    This is one of the Philip Woodfield range of lattice 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. The GCIII has a slightly smaller body than the GCII (which also has an elevated fingerboard where this GCIII does not have).
    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 a very impressive concert guitar, hence the choice of many good professionals, with fine materials, handsome appearance and like new.
