Details

Gallagher's Grand Concert 12-fret 000 is a sweet-voiced fingerstylist's guitar by design, made even sweeter by the combination of Brazilian rosewood and red spruce (grown right here in the Appalachian Mountains of Tennessee) on this custom model. Gallagher always strive to choose and develop their tonewoods so that they sound excellent new, only to get better with playing and age. To that end, they have this to say about this TN spruce:

"We picked this particular top because the density was relatively low as compared to other red spruce tops, but the elasticity was quite high due to its longitudinal stiffness. The elastic rating was 13,210 mPa, which is very high, particularly when used on a small body. The general perception for smaller body guitars is that tops with lower density and stiffness sound better."

To finish off this custom model, they've added abalone purfling, an abalone and rosewood rosette, and the real eye-catcher: a beautifully carved neck heel. We love Gallagher for their traditional-inspired builds and their uniquely high-end rustic aesthetics, and this one is no exception.
