Philip Woodfield Moore

  • Year:

    2012 - number 314

  • Body:

    Malaysian blackwood - beautiful timber with dark and interesting grain stripes. The sides are lined with maple. The Grand Concert II is distinguished by having a dropped body on the upper treble side to give a similar effect as an elevated fingerboard for improved access to the the area above the 12th fret. See photos.

    New. All shellac french-polished.

  • 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.
