Scott Tennant tells me his Woodfield ’Natalie’ has been around the world with him a few times now, and is his ‘go to’ guitar. Scott’s is very similar to this new Woodfield that just arrived which, like Scott’s, is a purely amazing concert level instrument. The tone of this guitar is exceptional, even by Woodfield standards with a huge amount of volume and projection.

SCOTT TENNANT PLAYING IS WOODFIELD ’NATALIE’ WHILE RECORDING THE MOST RECENT CD FOR THE LA GUITAR QUARTET RECENTLY.

This is a Grand Concert ll model, again like Scott’s, and has Woodfield’s trademark offset soundboard ( see photo ), so that the player views a very familiar traditional height fretboard on the bass side, the treble side has an elevated fretboard providing excellent access on the treble side where its needed.

As if all that was not enough Phil used his amazing 5000 year old Black Oak for the back and sides ( that is not a typo, yes it is 5,000 years old) the tone is unlike anything you have ever heard , literally indescribable. The neck is stunning Maple ( see photo ) just gorgeous. Add to all this Phil’s artistic scroll work on the rosette and tie block, and elegant ‘double helix’ design on the back, and you have not only one of the best sounding lattice guitars in the world, but also the most beautiful.

A work of pure art that appeals to your eyes as much as it does to your ears.

NEW Philip Woodfield ‘Grand Concert ll’ Spruce/lattice braced


The offset soundboard creates exceptional playability with an elevated fretboard on the treble side where you want it, and yet appears like a familiar traditional fret board to the player viewing it from the bass side

The Grand Concert ll neck looks familiar and traditional to the player when viewing from the bass side, while the treble side is designed to create an elevated fret board providing exceptional access where it is needed most.
