Gilchrist Model 3 Mandolin
 
November 24, 2016

Built by Australia’s Steven Gilchrist, this 1993 A-style Gilchrist Model 3 is Peghead Nation mandolin instructor Joe Walsh’s primary instrument. The instrument has a carved Engelmann spruce top and maple back and sides. The top is X-braced, and the fingerboard has a radius. Walsh originally came across the instrument in a Maine music store, but lacking the funds at the time, he had to pass on the purchase. Fortunately, it came up for sale again several years later, this time in a shop in Nashville, Tennessee. “It’s a beautiful mandolin that seems to complement my style in a way that I like,” says Walsh. Gilchrist is represented in the US by Nashville’s Carter Vintage Guitars (cartervintage.com).

To study mandolin with Joe Walsh, enroll in his courses The Advancing Mandolinist or Bluegrass Mandolin Jam Favorites on Peghead Nation.
