Description

This baby was built by Don Gallagher in 1997 for uber-picker Steve Kaufman. It's in fantastic shape and sounds as big as it looks. She's a beautiful sunburst cutaway made from Brazilian/Engleman, with some really sweet cosmetic touches to set her off. This guitar will reward a player who spends some time mastering her low B string. And the Fishman matrix pickup makes her ready for prime time. Give her a test drive -- we're sure you'll have as much fun as we have!

It's also fun to represent guitars from Pro players and recording artist. The instrument they choose for themselves are also among the very best we see. The label inside this one reads Made For Steve Kaufman by Don Gallagher 1997. Steve Kaufman has put 12 years of amazing music inside this guitar making it very special indeed.
 
I remember hearing Steve flatpick a 7-string for the first time. It was mind-blowing. Since I'm more of a fingerpicker, I wondered what this guitar might sound like with the standard demo tune. Having the low string added a whole new dimension to the chords and I loved it. The tone is rich and powerful without any mud. Just a great guitar custom made for a great player. If you're a 7-string fan or a Steve Kaufman fan or both, this is the guitar for you.
