If you wanna know the truth, we don’t just make musical instruments. We make dreams. We make love. We make art. And with that, we #lightuptheworld.

Jose Gallo | Founder & CEO


The Guitars

  • Every single one of our instruments is a one-of-a-kind work of art designed and hand-crafted for optimal performance at our Gallo Guitars studio in Brooklyn, NY.

  • Made by artists for artists, and lighting up stages around the world with some of the coolest acts out there like Coldplay, Monsieur Periné and many more.

  • All of our Gallo Guitars are marked with the date and the corresponding edition number. You are not just acquiring some gear, you are investing in a work of art.

The Studio

  • Our goal as a studio is to enhance your musical experience. Whether you are playing or attending a show, we want to inspire love, art and creativity into you, so you can shine your light to the world.

  • The future is now, and we are an active part of it. From your heart, to our studio, to stages around the world, we continue to #lightuptheworld one note at a time.
