G1

Slightly larger than an OM, this is an extremely versatile grand concert size guitar.
Technical specs
The G1 is quick to respond to even the lightest touch and it lends itself well to many different styles of music. It has a very focused yet open sound with a tight responsive bass, transparent mids and thick, clear, ringing highs. While primarily a fingerstyle guitar, it is also superb for light strumming, acoustic jazz and even classical repertoire.
  • Scale length: 25.4″
  • Body length: 19.5”
  • Lower bout: 15.375”
  • Upper bout: 11.5”
  • Depth: 4.375”
  • Overall length: 40″

“The guitar Michael made me is a physical marker of a great friendship. I am  truly fortunate to have this incredible instrument, as stunning to play and to  hear as it is to look at. A powerful and inspiring precision tool. Michael Greenfield turns  wood and glue into guitars so that we can turn moving air into music. It’s a  masterpiece”

-­ Tony McManus

“ ​It truly feels spectacular to play, and sounds as perfectly balanced as a  guitar can be. I am honoured to own and play it. “

G2

This grand auditorium size guitar is more aggressive than my model G1. It has a tight voice with lots of punch and power.
Technical specs
The G2 is a great all-around instrument and will easily lend itself to any musical style.
With a longer body, tight waist and round shoulders, this guitar still sits comfortably in your lap. The longer scale length makes it a great instrument for contemporary finger-style players with more aggressive, percussive styles and for those who use alternate and dropped tunings. The G2 is a canon for flat pickers and singer-songwriters. Able to handle strong picking/strumming styles, the sound will fill an auditorium; yet it’s still so amazingly sensitive it will respond to the lightest touch.
  • Scale: 655 mm (25.78″)
  • Body length: 20”
  • Lower bout: 16.125
  • Upper bout: 12.125”
  • Depth: 4.625”
  • Overall length: 40.875”

“ If the sound from the G2 was a fluid, a spoon would stand up in it… “

“ ​Michael, thanks for the beauty! “

G3

The classical inspired body shape makes it more versatile and lends itself better to a wider variety of musical styles than traditional parlor guitars do.
Technical specs
This small body, concert size guitar is slightly larger than the old pre-war 00 size parlour guitars. The classical inspired body shape makes it more versatile and lends itself better to a wider variety of musical styles than traditional parlour guitars do. The G3 is a lot of fun to play and has beautiful clear highs, yet a surprisingly present bass response for such a small-bodied instrument.
13-frets clear of the body.
Not available with cutaway.
  • Scale length: 25.0″
  • Nut width: 1 7/8″ or 1 13/16″
  • Body length: 19 1/4″
  • Lower bout: 14 3/4″
  • Upper bout: 11″
  • Depth: 4 1/8″
  • Overall length: 38″

“ If I was stranded on a desert island and could only take ten things, I  would choose my Greenfield G3 and nine sets of strings.”

G4

Perfect for many of today’s percussive, fingerstyle players, the G4 has a punchy bottom end and great definition across the tonal/harmonic spectrum. This is a large body, 17” instrument.
Technical specs
Another direction for this versatile instrument: if strung with .014” - .064”, the G4 can also fill in the gap between conventional and baritone guitars (C to C). This guitar is a powerhouse!
  • Scale length:  660 mm  (26″)
  • Body length: 20 3/4″
  • Lower bout: 17″
  • Upper bout: 12 3/4″
  • Depth: 4 5/8″
  • Overall length: 41 1/16″

 

“This guitar has the clear, calm force of a Norse god making a point about  something.”

-­ Jon Gomm 

( Baritone ) “ With its massive low end, crisp highs, superb responsiveness  and tremendous  dynamic projection this Baritone is an exquisite joy to  behold and play. I doubt there is a better instrument on the planet.”

G5

A soprano or Terz guitar. A fantastic addition to anyone’s collection. Wonderful for layered tracks in recordings and live performance.
Technical specs
Inspired by the C.F. Martin size 5 from the turn of the last century. Great for fingerstyle players as well as singer-songwriters who like to play capoed at the 5th fret or higher. Because of its very small body size, the G5’s voice brings an exciting timbre to your music!

The G5 is a lot of fun to play and has beautiful clear highs, yet a surprisingly present bass response for such a small-bodied instrument. Some enjoy it as a travel guitar.

12-frets clear of the body.
Not available with cutaway.
Scaled to be tuned A-A with light guage strings
  • Nut width: 1 11/16
  • Body length: 16″
  • Lower bout: 11 1/2
  • Upper bout: 8 1/8
  • Depth 3 3/4
  • Overall length: 33″

GF

The GF is the essential Greenfield Guitar. Discreetly priced, options are limited. The GF is fashioned with elegant, understated appointments and delivers that legendary, piano-like Greenfield tone.
Technical specs
The GF model is built on my G1 body with its own unique parameters. It has a more open, traditional voice than my lattice braced guitars. It is perfect for the aficionado who appreciates a performance-level instrument without the more ornate appointments and complex options available on my other models.
  • Scale length: 650mm
  • Body length: 19.5”
  • Lower bout: 15.375”
  • Upper bout: 11.5”
  • Depth: 4.375”
  • Overall length: 40″

“ This guitar is EPIC. I cannot explain the full experience of playing a  Greenfield for the first time because every moment is loaded with tonal  surprises that shock you as a guitarist. I have never heard an instrument  speak to me in this way and every pluck or strum leads to a new  realization; this is one of the best guitars in all of the world. ”

HG

My harp guitar has its own, proprietary body shape and many unique features. While inspired by the early 20th century harp guitars, this is truly a contemporary instrument incorporating all of the modern physics and design features found on all of my guitars.
Technical specs
My harp guitar is made of a laminated rim set, with laminated linings and a system of aerospace composite carbon fibre trusses and buttresses. This makes for an extremely rigid and stable skeletal structure. The soundboard is lattice braced. The Laskin style extended arm rest is included, as is a mini-rib rest on the rear of the pointed section of the upper bout.

“When I pick up my Greenfield harp-­guitar, I feel like I am wielding a palette  of infinite color and possibilities. It is an inspiring instrument to say the  least.”

-­ Andy McKee
