We’re proud to have a Gallagher guitar included in Joe Bonamassa’s very short list of instruments featured in his Carnegie Hall performances. Joe says this about his 1978 Doc Watson model:

“Doc Watson was a multi-Grammy Award winning blues, country, and folk guitarist. He is also one of Joe Bonamassa’s favorite acoustic players. After playing a Gallagher acoustic for over six years, Watson collaborated with luthier J.W. Gallagher to make the first ‘Doc Watson Model’ in 1974 during the height of his influence. This gorgeous guitar has a warm and booming tone thanks to the mahogany wood back and sides and solid Sitka-wood top. Joe can be seen strumming this beauty on a few tunes at Carnegie Hall. ‘One of the unknown signature guitars by a great unknown company for a great legendary artist.’ – JB”
