|Comments||Bryan Galloup has been repairing and building guitars since 1967, when he apprenticed to Dan Erlewhine at The Guitar Hospital in Big Rapids, Michigan – becoming the owner of the business in 1984. Since then his shop has flourished, doing all manner of repairs and refinishing, and running a lutherie school for several levels of skill – from master builders to technicians.
This 2009 Galloup Hybrid acoustic is a stunning instrument, in pristine condition, featuring top quality woods, very clean construction and great tone. It also uses the patented Feiten tuning system, a combination of nut compensation, saddle placement, and tuning offsets designed to bring as many notes into tune with each other as possible. Many quality tuners now feature Feiten offsets making the final tuning quick and easy.
