Borges / Julius OM28 Adirondack Varnish 2002 / 1929 / Guitar

Julius Borges has been building guitars since the mid-1980s and is known for his refined craftsmanship. Julius Borges builds in the Martin Pre-war style, his guitars are, amongst others played by Buddy Miller and Peter Rowan. His 1929 OM model is based on the first 14 fret Martin OM28 built in 1929. That's including a delicate varnish finish, and a (1 3/4") nut width paired to the xl Stringspacing (2 3/8")at the bridge The guitar is a beautiful interpretation with an Adirondack top and very nicely grained Indian rosewood, other features are mahogany neck and ebony fingerboard and bridge. A guitar with class, refined, powerful, balanced and with a particularly complex tone. The Borges OM is articulate and establishes a refined base and beautiful overtones. Although ideal for fingerstyle playing, it is versatile and an equally great compagnion for the singer songwriter and flat picker. This 1929 Orchestra Model is in near mint condition except for some weather checking in the varnish lacquer on the top, that must be considered natural aging. The lacquer is, by the way, comparable to shellac, an extremely intensive lacquering process that makes the sounds even more permeable. The previous owner clearly took good care of this precious Borges guitar. With original case.

I have always been opposed to being trapped into a job eight hours a day to purchase the free time to do what I enjoy. That’s why i started the Fellowship of Acoustics. The fellowship of acoustics was founded by Rudi Bults, Guitarist and obsessed with tone and wood. The idea was offering real expertise when trading and selling the finest instruments in the world from our showroom in Bergentheim, Netherlands. Helping others find the right tools and enjoying an atmosphere that’s unhurried, honest and informative that’s my go. We are nothing like the "supermarket" style music stores, but specialize in string-things only. We are widely known for Flattop guitars but also sell electric, mandolins & banjo’s, amps, parts, and accessories. Our store has earned the reputation for being a great place to shop for the best products and service.
It is our hope that this new website - much more than a list of "gear" for sale - will serve as an example of our commitment to offering a more personal approach, a friendly atmosphere, and an ultimately more satisfying experience for our friends and customers.
If you have any questions just dial +31-523-232205 or e-mail My name is Rudi Bults, and I’m always here to help out. Wherever possible, we would recommend that you visit our store and experience our instruments and service first hand. However, because of our high standards you can be confident of ordering online from us. We hope you enjoy your visit to our site, and welcome your feedback.
