Description

Fingerstyle comes in many packages from big to small, but there’s a niche in the in between that really sings. Michael Greenfield’s G3 model is right there in the middle with a 13-fret neck and a 14 5/8” lower bout: slim for comfort, but built for big tone. To that end, Michael added a Laskin-style arm bevel to this 2008 G3, and put a 25” scale length together with a 1 7/8” nut for a wide, easy-playing fretboard perfect for fingerpicking goodness. Brazilian Rosewood back and sides, Lutz Spruce on top, and Michael’s preferred Honduran Mahogany neck for stability and sustain. This G3 feels solid in your hands.
It’s very energetic and lively, even under a light attack. The trebles cut particularly well through the mix, without overpowering. The roomy string spacing makes quick work of complex chords to prevent your fingers from stumbling onto each other. This Greenfield responds well for a variety of styles, and it loves to ring out with sustained notes; they keep hanging for quite a while.

This is an incredible example of Michael Greenfield‘s work. The smaller G3 body is superbly balanced and well-suited for recording and live play. The 13th fret neck joint offers both an easy reach and a little more tone because the bridge is moved down into the wider part of the lower bout. This one also features the Laskin-style arm bevel for supreme comfort. This guitar really speaks to me.
