Gallagher G50 Dreadnought 2008

Gallagher G50 Dreadnought from 2008. The Gallagher guitar company is, not unlike TFOA, a true family company founded by JW Gallagher in 1965 and currently in the hands of his son Don and grandson Stephen. JW Gallagher, who passed away in 1979, was a true craftsman using the techniques honed while building furniture to create instruments with meticulous attention to detail. Although Gallagher remains somewhat of a "hidden secret", the brand did get it's fair share of well earned attention through the help of legendary flatpicker Doc Watson. For years Doc played a Gallagher G50 model and helped the brand gain some traction in the heavily competitive market of steelstring guitar builders. 

These days Gallagher still builds only a limited number of instrument each year to retain the high quality standard the brand has become known for. A small team of builders using the techniques and some of the old equipment JW used back in the day, a great stockpile of high-grade tonewoods and a whole heap of experience and knowledge gathered over the years make each Gallagher guitar something truly special. This G50, the Doc Watson model, from 2008 feels right from the getgo. Using the time-tested pairing of Honduras Mahogany and Sitka spruce combined with a slightly shorter scale length of 640mm it offers plenty of volume, warmth and richness together with a fantastic "slinky" and effortless playability. Rear-shifted scalloped X-bracings and a rosewood bridgeplate prevent the instrument from sounding to "muddy" and unclear, instead it projects and feels distinctly balanced and clear. The mahogany neck is soft V-shaped and has been topped with an ebony fingerboard showing tasteful pearl dot position markers. We are selling the guitar "as is" because she needs a neck reset. Also the frets and nut need some attention. Otherwise very clean with some minor playwear and several small dings here and there, there is some air beneath the finish on the back of the headstock. Includes original hardshell case.
