Gibson / Country Western / 1956 / Guitar

In 1954 the Southern Jumbo was given a Natural variant and from 1955 it bore the name 'Country Western'. The gold 'silkscreen' logo was replaced by a pearl 'Gibson' logo and the pearl crown design was added to the headstock. The round-shoulder dreadnought body features mahogany back and sides with a spruce top. The top has a few repaired cracks and wears a newer pickguard. The guitar has also had an overspray. There is also a small repaired tear on the back of the headstock and a piece of the binding on the treble side of the fingerboard has been replaced with a piece of ivoroid. It produces a full and warm sound and is the perfect instrument for flatpickers, bluegrass players but also for a singer-songwriter. In good condition and comes with a hardshell case and TFOA passport. Consignment.

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.


We do speak English, Dutch and German! Feel free to call in any of these languages and ask your questions! Call 0031-523-232205




We LOVE Guitars, and buy and trade for most stringed instruments. But we also do consignment, make appraisals for insurance or put you on our watch list. Please check the Buying & Trading page for details.
