    Story

    As fans of the unconventional, we've always been struck by the wide array of guitars in Rory Gallagher's collection. But there's one that's always stood out to us... it's a bit of a mystery guitar, and who doesn't love a good mystery?

    The story goes that Rory co-designed this guitar dubbed the "Rory Gallagher Model" - completed and delivered to him in 1975. Aside from that, all we really know is what can be found in photographs and what little documentation exists. One thing we can say for sure, however, is that this thing looks killer, and there should be more of them!

    The Eastwood RG Special will be a no-nonsense raw tone machine with its single humbucking pickup set into a solid Alder body. If you're after something that'll make you stand out from the crowd, while bringing things back to the basics with all the familiarity of a Les Paul JR., this is the one for you.

    But wait... what's the toggle switch for?

    There's just one last detail we need to sort out, and that's the toggle switch. Given the lack of documentation about this guitar, we have no clue what its original function was. We could take the easy route and just decide to make it a coil-split or a treble boost, but we thought it would be WAY more fun to let you help solve the mystery. Do you know what the original did? 

    What do you think it should be? Drop us a line, and let us know!

    UPDATE: We've landed on a final spec for the switch. It will be a three-way selector with the following options:

    UP: Single Coil
    MIDDLE: Humbucker, in Parallel
    DOWN: Humbucker, in Series
