About The GF Model
The Greenfield GF is the essential Greenfield Guitar. Production is limited and each GF is handcrafted in my Montréal shop. It is built with the same carefully selected materials, skilled craftsmanship and attention to detail I have built my reputation on. The GF is fashioned with elegant, understated appointments and delivers that legendary, piano-like Greenfield tone. Braces are shaped and plates voiced using small planes, gouges and chisels. I then carefully voice each body. Fingerboards are meticulously profiled with a compound radius and leveled to a tolerance of +/-.001”. Neck profiles are individually refined with rasps, files and lots of hand sanding. It is my philosophy that a truly extraordinary instrument is the result of the meticulous selection of the finest woods and materials with careful construction throughout. I assemble my instruments with hot, animal hide glue. This natural glue has been used for centuries by makers of the finest musical instruments because of its superior acoustic properties and its resistance to "creep".
The GF model is NOT a custom order instrument. It incorporates the same proprietary design found in all of my guitars but I have limited the choice of custom features and appointments in order to reduce the cost to you. The GF is perfect for the aficionado who appreciates a performance-level, luthier-built instrument without some of the more ornate appointments and complex options found on my custom commission guitars.
