Jim Hurst Model 

Jim Hurst is an extraordinary musician of many talents. Jim plays a wide variety of different styles of guitar from flatpicking to fingerstyle. In 1988, a group of Jim’s friends wanted to get him a nice guitar and gave Jim a Gallagher Doc Watson model. In 2008, Gallagher decided to honor Jim Hurst’s long tradition with Gallagher with his own model. This Model honors Jim’s playing style and is truly a performer’s guitar.
