The rosette, with a background of maple, is engraved with a motif taken from the column of an Anglo-Saxon stone cross in the British Museum. The bridge tie-block carries the same form of decoration.

    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 and full sound. Players such as Raymond Burley speak very highly about the volume, balance and sustain of this lattice-fronted spruce model.
