JUMBO (G.2)

JUMBO (G.2)

Grand Auditorium
(G.2)

"The unique tone, balanced response and exceptional workmanship of Bryan's guitar make it a very versatile instrument.

As a sideman, I get called to play a lot of different styles. The range of this guitar covers them all. It's a joy to play!" - Bill Cooley

G.2 Grand Auditorium

A low, solid, defined resonance is desired by many players for the foundation of their sound. The trick is to balance the low end with a defined midrange while retaining a clear high end. My G.2 is a Grand Auditorium classed instrument with an excellent fundamental resonance ideal for traditional Americana performances.

“If you’re looking for great low end volume and clarity, my G.2 has it. I have spent decades perfecting its tone to deliver a well balanced, powerful performer."

ORCHESTRA (G.3)

ORCHESTRA
(G.3)

G.3 Orchestra
The Orchestra classed guitar has become the go-to instrument for many performers for its emphasis on balance and clarity. The higher pitched fundamental is the key to its success, so I developed my G3 to match the resonances players prefer for more articulated music styles.

“My G3’s 15.5 lower bout and classic Orchestra body depth give it a smaller frame, something many players prefer and for finger style performances, I have carefully balanced its mobility for the response and feel this class of instrument is known for”.

PARLOR (G.4)

GRAND PARLOR
(G.4)

G.4 Grand Parlor
My G.4 is a small 12 fret to-the-body design that has an extended shoulder area which lowers its fundamental while retaining the positioning and feel players identify with on a 12 fret instrument. The design works well with both short and long scale lengths; this makes for a versatile instrument that is both easy-chair comfortable and has enough punch to accompany an ensemble.

“This is my go to guitar for everyday playing. Its smaller compact frame makes it so much fun to hold and play”.

BARITONE (G.5B)

BARITONE (G.5B)

G.5B
My Contra Baritone offers alternative tonal options while retaining usable string tensions during drop tunings and also the option of performing in lower keys while maintaining the same cord positions. Its extended 28.750 scale requires a smaller .066 through .016 gauge set for B to B and .064 through .015 for C to C. Moving away from the standard large gauge baritone stings gave me the tone I was looking for while opening up the lower end register and increasing the instruments overall clarity.

“I love playing my Contra Baritone; it’s a blast and an ideal match for my lower range voice. With my custom string gauges I can set the perfect balance of tension, playability, and tone, making it a hard guitar to put down. For performers who want to experiment with string gauges, alternative tunings, or explore multi-capo techniques, it’s an incredible instrument."

AUDITORIUM (G.6)

Auditorium
(G.6)

“My Galloup Guitar has a special place in my acoustic collection. Using wood from my home state of Michigan, Bryan crafted a beautiful instrument made from northern Michigan hard maple”.- Jeff Daniels

G.6 Auditorium
The Auditorium is the preferred body size for many players for its emphasis on defined low end, balance and clarity. My G.6 is a great Auditorium classed instrument ideal for finger style, Jazz and crossover classical performances. Its medium body size reminds you that something is in your hands without the mass of a full traditional guitar.

“For many players my G.6 is an ideal match for their wide repertoire without crossing over to a full bodied instrument."

ARCHTOP (G.8CE)

ACOUSTIC ARCHTOP
(G.8CE)

G.8CE 17” Archtop
My G.8CE is a traditional 17” archtop guitar ideal for jazz and swing-style music. With maple back and sides, and a solid spruce top, it is a great sounding instrument played as an acoustic or plugged in. Its Venetian cutaway and single neck mounted mini hum canceling pickup are standard on all models.

“This is just a fun guitar to play. Its light weight offers an open tone while retaining an all-around great Jazz guitar chunk."

BASS (G.9C)

ACOUSTIC BASS
(G.9C)

G.9C
Many players find themselves wanting an acoustic bass guitar that performs just like a standard acoustic guitar, but there are two big issues. First, it has to fit your body just like an electric bass would with a full 34 inch scale. Secondly, the tone has to be clear, open, and balanced. My G.9 C’s patent pending design is the first guitar-formatted acoustic bass that allows this all to happen.

“I custom designed my load displacement system to allow the use of a full 34”scale while retaining the feel a bass player is use to. This is a big deal, they shouldn’t be asked to learn a new instrument; they just want to play. Not to mention that the tone is killer."
