This GA-60 comes with rosewood fretboard with side markers only for a nice, clean woody overall look. Snakewood bridge pins tie in the Waverly open-gear tuning machines with snakewood knobs. The GA-60 is a rosewood guitar designed by the new owner of Gallagher, 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. This guitar features a Western Red Cedar top 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.
