The new G-60 is an addition to the Gallagher family of guitars. Only five G-60 guitars were built in the early days of Gallagher before it was discontinued. We have brought it back with a new design with a natural, earthy appearance with the wood binding and rosette.
This guitar looks and sounds amazing! Smaller body size (auditorium or OO size) but with a big, full sound. The Ragtime has been Gallagher’s best selling small body guitar since its inception in 1978.
Much like the G-70 Slotted, This Doc was started in Wartrace and completed in the new shop which makes it a truly unique guitar. It comes with the Gallagher & Son branding on the back brace and the new Gallagher label inside the soundhole.
New home in Greenfield, GA: This particular Doc Watson model, #3800, is the first of the serial numbers in Murfreesboro shop. We carefully selected the Sitka Spruce top for its characteristics and it proved to be a good choice. With voiced bracing and African mahogany this guitar is a players dream.

G-70 Slotted Headstock
Found a home in Oley, PA. “Everything on the guitar is first rate. I heard Doc Watson around 1966 when he, his son Merle, and a neighbor drove thru the snow to play in a small auditorium at the Indiana Univ. Folklore Club. That summer I made my parents drive me to N.Y.C. to hear him at Carnegie Hall. I think this is maybe the model he would have used next. Thank you for sending it.”
Doc Watson – Used
No Longer Available: Found a new home in Memphis, TN on 3/8/2020.
This Doc Watson was built in 1976. It has just gone through a complete restoration due to the top needing to be replaced. We found a Sitka Spruce top which already had some age on it and with the mahogany it creates a wonderfully bright, full sound.
