(USED) Circa 1980 Gallagher 75 Special, Sitka, Rosewood Dreadnought – $1,895

(USED) Here is a guitar that has some stories to tell!  This Gallagher dread has been all over the world as the primary tool of a professional touring folk musician… now it’s ready to take on new life in someone else’s capable hands.

It looks the part, that’s for sure… dozens of dings and scratches and ample finish wear reveal that this guitar has been played and played hard.  Amazingly, it has no cracks or structural issues to report.  The bridge was re-glued in our shop, and the guitar has a fresh setup.  The neck on this instrument was slimmed at some point, and the profile is a very fast modified “V”.  It also appears that the fingerboard has been planed (presumably to forestall a neck reset) and the frets show some wear under the B string in the first position.

1 11/16″ nut width with 2 1/4″ string spacing at the saddle, white plastic binding with abalone top border purfling and rosette.  Endpin drilled for a pickup (currently plugged) and strap button installed at the heel.  Includes hardshell case.
