    Jim Hurst playing a new small-bodied Gallagher P-70

    I hope he left some notes in it

    I cannot believe that tone is coming out of that little guitar. Amazing!!!

    I also didn’t realize Gallagher was in Murfreesboro.
    I just drove up there this past February to buy my Martin HD-28V from a shop that still had an unsold 2018 model.
    I’d have loved to drop by and see their shop. If they let folks look.

    They welcome people. But you should call first. Many of the tools and fixtures came from the old shop in Wartrace.

    Gaaak. I'd love to have one that matches my G-45. Custom shop would do it...but I don't want to pay for that! I love me some parlor guitars.

    I regret never visiting them in Wartrace. I lived within a hour or so...and everybody told me I should go.

    Ah well, I have relatives in Murfreesboro and friends in SMT (suthern middle tennessee). When we can go visitin' again, I may have to stop by the new shop!

    I have been to the Wartrace location . I wonder if the book went along with the business to Murfreesboro ?

    It did not. I believe it is in the Wartrace Historical Society.

    A COPY of the book made the journey

    Ha! He played all the notes out!

    It’s like the piano in Rays music, “hey Jim this guitar is all worn out there’s no action left”


    Disc:yes I know piano action is different

    More photos. This is the only style-70 “parlor” they have built. This is a magnificent beast...they should build more!

    New England is especially lovely this time if year.
    You deserve a vacation. With that guitar.
    I know a guy who could show you around.

    No! All the frustrations that I need thank you!

    Seems rather guy making the neck was so used to making slitheads, that by the time anybody noticed, it was in the can. They would have done another for me, but what the hey. This one will be just fine. :)
