1979 Gallagher G-70 Guitar

(Serial No. 1375) Near mint condition, made in the heart of bluegrass country in Wartrace, TN. Gallaghers are made in very limited numbers so you have to seach them out. Its uncommon to find a used one. Pickers that play a Gallagher have owned the other makes and models and have chosen a Gallagher for the sound. This is a blue ribbon flatpicking guitar - the same make as the one that was played by Doc Watson. It has all solid woods with a Sitka spruce top, figured Brazilian roswood back and sides, an ebony fingerboard and bridge, bone nut and saddle, grained ivoriod binding, pearl logo, and nickel hardware. Strap button added at the heel. Nut width is the standard 1-11/16 inch. A long grain crack is repaired on the back. According to the original owner, this happened when the guitar was about six months old, and was glued and cleated by Don Sr. himself. The sound is simply amazing - very loud with excellent tone. Action is low with plenty of saddle left. Fitted with an undersaddle pickup and endpin jack. Comes with the original hardshell case.
