In 1968 Doc and Merle Watson started playing guitars made by J.W. and Don Gallagher, a G-50 and a G-40 respectively. This orginal G-50 which Doc called "Ol Hoss" is on display at he Country Music Hall of Fame in Nashville. The 13/4" neck has wide low fast action frets which make this guitar a joy to play. I am delighted to have the full agency in Ireland for these superb guitars.
