Item Details

Rory Gallagher left an indelible mark on the guitar world with his work with Taste as well as his solo albums. His playing has inspired many guitar heroes that have come after him including U2's The Edge, Slash, Joe Bonamassa and Davy Knowles to name a few. This axe helps recreate his infamous '61 Strat and comes as close to a perfect vintage repro as any we have ever seen.

The select Alder body shows almost no sunburst finish left on it, just like Rory's, and captures all of the irregularities that helped make his guitar so unique. the maple neck features an early 60's C shape with the finish worn off, a rosewood fretboard, clay dot inlays with one replaced plastic dot at the 12th fret and a 1.650" nut. 5 Sperzel tuners grace the headstock with one replaced Gotoh tuner ( low E string ) just like Rory's guitar. It should be noted that all of the wear to the body is designed to replicate the exact areas of wear of his guitar. 3 Custom 60's Single Coil pickups are cranking out the perfect compliment of Blues / Rock tone. Other standout features include slot head mounting screws at the 3 way selector switch, 3 ply mint green pickguard, American Vintage synchronized tremolo bridge and a brown Vintage deluxe hard shell case. The serial number is # R32007 and this axe weighs 7.6 pounds.
