Description

Originally presented to the winner of the 2003 Merlefest guitar picking contest, we are happy to now offer this fine Gallagher Dreadnought to you. We have one of Gallagher's more popular models on our hands here, their Doc Watson Edition, complete with Mahogany back and sides and Sitka Spruce top.

Lots of bark to this bad boy, and a meaty midrange that absolutely sings when played with an aggressive attack. Definitely a guitar for flatpickers, this is a Dreadnought which will project a complex tone colored by great low-end depth with the best of them. Furthermore, this guitar straddles the line between the traditional—with its herringbone trim and tortoise-style pickguard—and the modern—with its Florentine cutaway and asymmetrical headstock.

This guitar comes with a TKL hardshell case.

A strong and confident guitar for the price point. I could see a Bluegrass player spicing up the tone of their repertoire with the fat, sultry low-end this Dreadnought brings to the table. It's only 12 years old, so I predict the sound will continue to develop an even greater complexity soon.
 
I really liked this guitar and it lives up to its Doc Watson name by being clear and present in all frequencies with plenty of punch like an old Martin might have.
