The Ecstatic Guitar Theorem
Critical Tone Analysis
𝑑1 =5.0 (5 -n) +1 =1.5 )
2.Individual note decay as well as blended in a chord: exceptional, clear, defined and responsive decay 5.0
approx 14 + sec
𝑑2 = 5.0 (5 – n) +1 =2 )
3. Basic volume and presence: loud and responsive, intimate playing experience, upfront and personal bloom with a concert finish, glassy and light to dark and rich, clear and present 5.0
𝑑3 = 5.0 (5 – n) +1 =2 )
4. Individual note separation and focus: excellent note separation and focus, chiming highs and bellowing lows, consistent balance allows for exceptional dynamic use, responsive 5.0
𝑑4 = 5.0 ( 5– n) +1 =2 )
5.Systematic sustain: large sustain depth rich in upper and lower partials, very precise and focused sustain with a warm lush finish, 4.9
𝑑5 = 4.9 (4.9 – n) +1 =1.9 )
6. Response compliance: consistent, reliable response across the spectrum 4.9
𝑑6 = 4.9 (4.9– n) +1 =1.9 )
7. Balance and quality of tone: very well balanced, constant bloom and finish, 5.0
𝑑7 = 5.0 (5.0 – n) +1 =2 )
8. Even strength and balance of each string: consistent even balance and projection from all strings, very responsive 5.0
𝑑8 = 5.0 (5.0 – n) +1 =2 )
9. Tone projection :intimate, warm upfront projection with a centric focus on the immediate surrounding environment, concert like finish and presence from a distance 5.0
𝑑9 = 5.0( 5.0 – n) +1 =2 )
10. A large dynamic range: a vast source of exceptional timbre, upfront decay, box echo (listen to Firebrite),very clear and enchanting highs, round clear and responsive notes, droplets of sound in bell lie chimes to sharp and dry
𝑑10 = 5.0 (5.0 – n) +1 =2)
𝑑11 = 5.0 ( 5.0 – n) +1 = 2)
Quality Of Tone
A rich and responsive guitar with a lot of character. A very personal and intimate response that will really cater to players looking to surround or submerge themselves in their music. A professional level instrument with a lot to offer a player at any skill level. The playability is off the charts, there is no fighting or wrestling with the guitar for tone. Very pleasing tone is reached even by a light touch. A very precise and balanced instrument suited for any guitar player. In my opinion the G3 could be the only guitar needed to take over the world. A big powerful dynamic voice, small size, and intimate experience make it an instrument that is very difficult to put down.

This guitar began construction in 2011 and was finished the same year. The goal was to craft a guitar unlike any other Greenfield in the world: a very special Greenfield guitar. Focus was on creating a unique Greenfield instrument with effortless playability, thick tone, and above all, a very intimate playing experience.
This guitar features Michael Greenfield’s patented Tone Halo. The shape and design of the guitar is Michael’s own design. The bracing patterns as well as voicing are all designs invented by Michael Greenfield. The G3 is the ultimate small-bodied guitar with a loud concert response. It has a very special, focused, and precise voice.
This small-bodied, 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.
This guitar seems to have the cut and styling of a refined gentleman. A very clean and firm look is paired with an enchanting handsomeness. It is a very attractive guitar with a powerful presence.
The Listening Bar
The Hans Creek Sessions
Recordings were done on site alongside the photographs amongst the forest and infantry of mosquitos. These are notRecordings professional recordings and are down directly on a Macbook in the forest. Theses tracks were recorded with old strings, on the forest floor, while being eaten alive by bugs. More clips will follow in a more controlled recording environment. This guitar was begging to be played, so I did.
