Slechts ongeveer 90 van deze buitengewoon zeldzame Gibson SJ200 rosewood zijn gemaakt voor WO2 -net zo veel ongeveer als van de Martin D45- waarna de gitaar in vele opzichten veranderde. Prewar specimens zijn de meest gewilde Gibson gitaren in de geschiedenis, niet alleen vanwege de kwaliteit van materiaal en vakmanschap, maar uiteindelijk ook vanwege het fantatstisch geluid. Een palissander SJ-200 brult als geen andere gitaar, maar behoudt nog steeds een verrassende mate van response en helderheid. Deze bijzondere gitaar laat zien hoeveel is er gedaan. Hoewel het model in zijn oorspronkelijke versie slechts 4 jaar is geproduceerd, tonen de exemplaren die overleefd hebben een verrassende verscheidenheid aan eigenschappen. Dit bijzondere instrument combineert het beste voor de vintage gitaar liefhebber/verzamelaar. - Bijzonder fraai palissander achter en zijkanten (terwijl de meeste anderen vrij saai zijn), - puntig vingerbord einde (terwijl velen een vierkant hebben), - Een zeer rijke donkere sunburst(terwijl het merendeel van een lichtere variant zijn), - Vergulde en gegraveerde Grover G-98 stemmechanieken (vaak simpele kluson), Kortom: dit behoort tot de zeldzaamste van deze zeldzaamste, en buitengewoon in veel opzichten. Na wat vakkundig restauratiewerk door een luthier uit Nashville gaf deze aan dat deze gitaar tot de best bewaade en de meest zeldzame uit zijn hele carrière beschouwde. Deze gitaar wordt geleverd met de juiste tweedcase (met twee strepen)- Deze gitaar is meer dan een andere gitaren zeldzaam, veel zeldzamer worden ze niet, en daardoor uiteraard ook een top-investerings project. English: Only about 90 of Gibson’s most elaborate and high end flattop were made before WW2, after which it changed in so many respects to make production cheaper that it essentially became a different, much less desirable instrument (still very good, though). Prewar specimens are the most desirable Gibson guitar in history, not only due to rarity but also because of the quality of material and workmanship, and ultimately: sound. A rosewood SJ-200 roars like no other guitar while still maintaining a surprising amount of responsiveness irrespective of its size. This particular guitar shows how much it has been loved and played, but the playing wear is all in the right places to make for an incredible patina and vibe. Even though the model in its original version was short-lived, only 4 years, the surviving specimens show a surprising variety of features. This particular instrument happily combines what most vintage lovers see as the most desirable features of the model very highly figured rosewood (while most others are rather plain) pointed fingerboard end (while many have a square end) rich dark sunburst (while most were of a lighter variety) gold plated engraved Grover G-98 tuning machines (while others have the bulky Klusons) In short: amongst the rarest of the rare, this particular guitar is perhaps the most desirable due to the combination of features – and its tone. When some restoration, expertly and mostly undetectable, was done to it, the seasoned Nashville luthier whom it was entrusted, and who has had a great many of vintage come through his workshop, pointed out that he regarded this particular instrument as the best sounding vintage guitar he has come across in his entire career. This guitar comes with the Correct “tweed” (with two stripes) Period case- This guitar is more than just another guitar, vintage Martin and Gibson Flattops have proven to be a firm investment as well and they don't come much rarer.

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.
