New Philip Woodfield Guitar
Wednesday, January 21, 2009
Raymond has just taken charge of a new guitar by the Sussex-based guitar maker Philip Woodfield. The guitar, named"Billie" (after Philip's favourite jazz singer Billie Holliday), is a lattice braced, spruce fronted instrument with Macassar ebony back and sides and a Brazilian cedar neck. Although it was only recently strung up it already has substantial volume, clarity, and excellent balance across the tonal range.
Raymond will shortly be recording the soundtrack for 'To Hear or Not to Hear', a film made by the producer/director Erika Stevenson.
