Description

From the man himself: "My name is Michael Greenfield and I am passionate about tone. Great tone. FAT tone. I believe in squeezing every last molecule of tone out of my guitars.” Michael, we believe it. This practically new 2017 C1 Classical is a heady brew of energetic trebles and chocolaty rich bass notes—and this Greenfield still has more waking up to do. Indian Rosewood and Alpine Moonspruce never looked so good. Not only has Michael managed to build a guitar that’s complex and dynamic right off the bench, he’s done so with a number of creature comforts to keep the modern player happy.


Ebony armrest, elevated fingerboard, 12-pin bridge, and the pièce de résistance: a fully adjustable neck that can be tweaked on the fly, at full tension. All it takes is one twist of a hex wrench at the center of the fretboard extension and the action will glide up or down as needed. The neck carve retains the traditional Classical D shape, but Michael’s added some contemporary curves to the cheeks that are easy on the hands, and very familiar to a steel string player. Simply put, this Greenfield C1 means business. By the sounds of it, business is good.

Michael Greenfield is one of the top innovators in the guitar world. Constantly searching for how to get more from an aoustic instrument. In the C1 model he’s applied that thinking to a nylon string guitar, and what he’s come up with is nothing short of amazing. There are too many details to mention, but it all adds up to tone and power. The notes simply fire out of this instrument, and the play feel is extraordinary. Precise everywhere up and down the neck. If you’re looking for a nylon string that is not burdened by tradition and offers you everything you need to make your music, check this one out from Michael Greenfield.
