Description

These old Gallagher guitars are some of the best-kept secrets in the vintage guitar market. Made down in Wartrace, TN by JW Gallagher & his son Don, this G-70 model is a flatpicker's dream, producing a really warm, rich tone that projects quite nicely. A well-balanced dreadnought that can easily compete with its Martin counterpart in the sound department. Professionally set up & ready for action upon arrival.

Cosmetic Condition: This beauty was obviously someone's go-to guitar & it shows with lots of good, honest wear & tear - various nicks, chips, dents & dings; scratches, buckle rash, weather checking & some finish wear. Overall the guitar has a great well-worn look to it with a cool, true vintage vibe.

Neck: V-shaped mahogany neck with nicely aged cream binding & black side-dots. Ebony fingerboard with mother of pearl diamond inlays. Frets show some wear, but have plenty of life in them. Bound headstock with mother of pearl "G" inlay. Grover Rotomatic tuners are in perfect working condition. 1 5/8" nut width; 25 1/4" scale length. Neck is straight & plays well.

Body: Double-bound dreadnought body in natural finish. Solid spruce top with herringbone purfling. Ebony bridge & pins with mother of pearl dot inlays. Tortoise pickguard & herringbone rosette. Solid Indian rosewood back & sides with herringbone center strip. Guitar weighs 4 lbs 12.8 oz.

Electronics: Under-saddle passive pickup in good working condition.

Case: Hardshell case included.
