Description

This is the most beautiful Gallagher we've seen to date. It's crafted from a very rare set of Brazilian Rosewood from Mike Longwood's (of Martin Guitars) personal collection and it is first rate, the kind builders lust over. It's paired with a very silky Sitka top for an angelic voice that is warm and complete. The Dogwood inlay is stunning and accompanied by Maple bindings on the body, neck and head as well as an abalone top border, bridge inlays and very rare abalone herringbone backstrip. Again, the Brazilian Rosewood here is phenomenal, truly rare and special. This is a very unique Gallagher with an amazing tone.

You can really sense that Don Gallagher got into this project. Somehow he managed to acquire this unbelievable set of Brazilian directly from Martin Guitar's Mike Longworth. Just look at the photos and you can see this is extremely rare wood and you can hear it in the voice. I'm a big Sitka fan and this set has abundant Medullary rays which make for a warm, rich tone. Every detail is exquisite and the playability is superb. A very inspiring instrument...
 
Balanced, clear voice. Great Fingerstyle Guitar.
