Dominique Field is internationally recognized as France's top builder in his generation. This guitar has unique design features particularly in the headstock, purfling and rosette. The sound is very, very refined and at the same time, extremely powerful. It has the aesthetic beauty of Hauser and Bouchet and the volume of Dammann or Smallman. In our opinion, Field is simply one of the best makers in the world today. His instruments are currently being played by some of the world's leading concert artists including Eduardo Isaac, Vladimir Mikulka and Scott Tennant. Several other top players are still awaiting instruments including Adam Holzman and Vicente Amigo. Field's enormous wait-list was finally closed in August of 2006. Demand for these instruments is enormous and GSI is proud to be his exclusive world-wide dealer, receiving one instrument per year from him.
This 2003 example (#157) is in excellent condition, and has a gorgeous, very powerful tone.
