Rory Gallagher Guitar Archive

GET UP CLOSE AND PERSONAL WITH A SELECTION OF RORY GALLAGHER'S ICONIC GUITAR COLLECTION

In the years that have passed since Rory Gallagher’s death, aged 47 on June 14 1995, his true stature has become ever more clear. This soft spoken Irishman, characterised by his flowing locks and trademark working man stage clothes, was far from ordinary. Gallagher was a self taught virtuoso who forged a musical revolution in his native land, shunned the traps of fame and stardom yet became a universally acclaimed international folk hero. Rory had an extensive collection of rare and eccentric instruments - visit the UK Guitar Show Vintage Zone to peruse this unique collection.
