We can’t get enough of the varnish Guitars we get delivered form Collings every so often, and this Collings OM42A varnish only fuels our enthusiasm more. The Varnish finish is a 3 day job for one person, and is providing the guitar with an ultra thin, very flexible protection that results in ultimate resonance and projection. Simply because there is less material between the wood and the outside. Testing between varnish- and non-varnish Collings guitars you immediately and without any doubt notice the relatively great difference. These extremely rare (most certainly for Europe) varnish guitars by Collings are constructed with all the knowledge Bill Collings gathered over the years- and are among the best available on this planet. The varnish provides a number of qualities like for instance a bigger punch and overall response, increased projection and a faster response time. This is a guitar suitable for almost everyone, as it projects like a canon, and seems to have endless headroom. The Rosewood used on this guitar is how you and I both like it, evenly bookmatched, and carefully selected by looking at the grain structure. The Adirondack spruce top is not to wide and not to small, hence open and projective, crisp in the bass. Other features include 650mm scale length, ebony bridge, ebony fingerboard, Gold Waverly tuners, 'drop in' bone saddle, ebony Peghead overlay, grained ivoroid binding, abalone purfling and abalone inlay around the sound hole. The somewhat yellowish Varnished guitars are visually spectacular and tonally the most impressive you probably ever heard.

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.
