From the small town of Wartrace, Tennessee, these guitars have been built since 1965, first by J.W. Gallagher and soon thereafter with his son, Don. They started off by sawing a Martin dreadnaught in half, and to this day their guitars retain a strong Martin influence. Fame came to the company when Doc Watson chose Gallagher as his exclusive instrument, and played it for decades.
This example is their Grand Concert model, being 15" wide, with 12 frets to the body, "V" shaped neck and a nut width of almost 1 ¾". It is braced in their traditional Gallagher-voiced x-bracing, with rosewood back & sides and spruce top, and is in very fine condition, the only issue being finish checking which is almost a given for an almost 50 year old guitar.
