Details

Gallagher's Grand Concert 12-fret GC (Grand Concert) 000 is a sweet-voiced fingerstylist's guitar in any tonewood combination. But with a set of birdseye maple like this, it's really something special. It certainly has the bright clarity and punchy highs you'd expect from maple, but those are balanced out well by a tight, articulate bass and mellow midrange. For the soundboard, Gallagher have opted for Lutz spruce, which is a naturally occurring hybrid of Sitka and white spruce that grows up along the coasts of Alaska and British Columbia. Some players compare Lutz to Adirondack for its dynamic range and healthy response to a strong attack.

To finish off this custom model, they've used a set of striped ebony for the fingerboard, bridge and headstock overlay, adding texture and even more light/dark contrast. With these unusual tonewoods combined on this smaller body size, the resulting tone is unique, and an excellent counterpoint to a rosewood or mahogany guitar.
