G-60, Rosewood with Cedar top

Want a guitar that is responsive, piano-like and so enjoyable to sit and play?  Consider the G-60 with East Indian Rosewood back and sides with a Western Red Cedar top. 

The G-60 line is a rosewood guitar that can be built in any of the body shapes that we offer.  The G-60 was designed by the new owner, who was turning 60 years of age, with an emphasis upon finger-style playing and an earthy, visual aesthetic with rosewood binding and a single band rosewood rosette.  Rosewood provides clear, bright highs with enhanced lows so the mids are not as pronounced as mahogany guitars.  Some refer to rosewood having a metallic nature with its dark and complex sound that offers rich overtones.  There were five original G-60s built during the 1960s before the model was discontinued.

For the soundboard, we use Western Red Cedar which is less dense than spruce and produces a slightly darker tone and richer overtones.  Red Cedar has emerged as an interesting top tone wood for players looking for that specific sound which is often described as a warmer, fuller, mellower sound.  Cedar often sounds more mature “out of the box.”  Cedar top guitars are often desired by finger-style guitar players.  We are very pleased with the clear bass and mid-range along with the crisp, clear highs this guitar produces.

The appointments are consistent on all guitars in the G-60 line regardless of body size.

  • Rosewood bridge and fretboard
  • Side markers only on fretboard
  • Rosewood binding for body
  • Gallagher “G” on headstock
  • Single band rosewood rosette
  • Maple strip on the side outlining the rosewood binding
  • BWBW top purfling/trim
  • Snakewood end pin and bridge pins
  • Waverly open gear tuners with Snakewood knobs
