Martin / 017 / 1943 / Guitar

The Martin 017 was introduced in 1929, and together with the slightly larger 0017 - which appeared on the market a year later - responded to the desire for steel-string guitars. Until then, the guitars were equipped with gut strings, but due to the ever-growing demand for larger and louder 14-fret guitars without a slotted headstock, Martin decided to make the switch. With its compact appearance, smooth playability and beautiful sound, the War-Era Martin 017 is a guitar ideally suited for fingerstyle. The guitar has a full mahogany construction, so the midrange is emphatic and lively, but the sound is beautifully balanced due to the clear highs and subtle bass. This Martin 017 was built in 1943 and has developed over its 80 years of existence into a particularly characterful guitar with a beautiful appearance, both visually and tonally. The guitar has a repaired center seam crack on the top, where the lacquer has also been slightly touched up. In addition, a neck reset and refret have been performed, and the fingerboard has also been flattened during the last operation. The guitar also shows beautiful subtle weather checking that betrays the respectable age of the instrument, but this Martin is nevertheless in very good condition. The guitar has the original paint, tuners and pickguard, and is a wonderful example of the unparalleled charm that vintage guitars can exude. The guitar comes with TFOA passport in a vintage 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.
