Galloup Guitars

Tone to inspire for a lifetime

My career has been dedicated to understanding quality musical instruments and their role with delivering a world-class performance. This is the single driving force behind every guitar I make.

-Bryan Galloup-

Bryan is at the top of the heap right now in terms of classifying and building with the best woods in a manner that uses technology to achieve consistency.

G.2c

Grand Concert

A full body Grand Concert with emphasis on power and deep fundamentals; this is just an all around great guitar.

The top end has a bell quality and some insane overtones; Bryan’s guitars has a rare quality of natural reverb that fills the room.

Magic. Pure magic. Bryan Galloup manages to mix bell-like trebles with a crisp midrange, throw in a powerful bass, and stir to perfection.

This G.2c is what I would think of when someone asks, “What’s one guitar that can do it all?”

Tone Wood Selections

My Tone Wood Library is one of the most prestigious private collections in the world. The bulk of my tone woods are decades old with many woods reaching vintage or even antique status. Each set is separated into three categories: Master Grade for their baseline quality that is used for all standard builds. Reserve Grade for woods that meet an elevated level of sonic qualities and ultimately my Private Stock Collection that delivers only the highest standards for tone, response, rarity and beauty.

Dynamic Voicing™

It was in 2015 when I made guitar number #1501 that I achieved my ultimate goal for tone, response and reliability. This was the birth of the modern Galloup Guitar sound and I knew I could reproduce it every time. These goals were made possible through the development of my Dynamic Instrument Making System™ and Sonic Wood Management™ Software. This patent pending process assists in producing musical instruments with incredible sonic accuracy.

Commissions

In the United States we are represented by Paul Heumiller at Dream Guitars and in South Korea we work with Sungmo Kim of Wood Sound Guitars. I reserve up to four guitars a year for trade shows and international tours such as Jamie Gale’s Boutique Guitar Showcase. If an inhouse order were accepted, a non-refundable deposit based on the final commissioned price is required with the balance due 30 days before shipping or delivery. Quoted prices do not include shipping, duties, insurance, taxes, import/export regulations or custom flight cases. Each Galloup Guitar is delivered with a premium TKL case with our proprietary green and brown tooled leather appointments.

I reserve the majority of my yearly production as non-bespoke guitars that are primarily made from my Reserve Grade or Private Stock tone woods. We are not a deadline building team and our schedules are subject to change. The building process is not rushed under any circumstances so we can complete our instruments to meet only the highest standards. 

Options

Some details are commonly adjusted for the customer’s preferences but custom designed appointments are quoted for each individual customer. Options such as cutaways and armrests have a set price wail others are priced based on design elements, materials and execution.
