Top tier guitar luthiery in the hands of one of the greats

NAMM 2020: Greenfield Guitars and Andy McKee have announced the launch of two new acoustic guitar models to celebrate 15 years since they first met.

Andy McKee, whose career has seen him perform to audiences around the world including a
run of concerts with Prince, now has an extensive collection of Greenfield instruments,
saying: “Michael Greenfield is one of the finest builders on the planet, without a doubt. Every instrument he has made for me has been like a work of art – He’s helped me find my own sound!”

The Greenfield Guitars Andy McKee signature is a cutaway jumbo based on the Greenfield
Guitars G4 model. It features Laskin-style arm and rib bevels, a Florentine cutaway, fanfret
fingerboard design, premium Macassar Ebony back and sides and an Adirondack Spruce top.

The Rylynn model, also a fanfret, brings the same Greenfield tone and playability to a more
accessible price point with Wengé back and sides and an Adirondack Spruce soundboard.
Both guitars feature a radially braced back plate with proprietary Greenfield Tone Halo
design.

In an exclusive call with Guitar.com Michael Greenfield, whose clients also include
Keith Richards, Tony McManus and Pipo Romero, shared:

“As a guitar maker, my primary aim is to create instruments that will allow the player to
articulate the color and texture of their music and bring out the beauty within. It has been a pleasure and a privilege to share Andy McKee’s musical journey over the past 15 years and our friendship remains a source of inspiration and joy for me.”

Each guitar comes with a numbered certificate of authenticity signed by Andy McKee and
Michael Greenfield.
