Martin / D18 / 1956 / Guitar

This D18 has had some maintenance in its life, so that it is now, after more than 65 years, still very playable and in good condition. The top has had an overspray, as has part of the side of the body on the treble side and part of the neck. Other work on the top is the bridge that has been reglued, a piece of the X-brace has been repaired and one side tone bar has been replaced. The low E and A strings are still kept in tune by Kluson Single Line machine heads, while the other strings are fitted with period correct machine heads. There are also two patches on the side that indicate that pickups were once installed. Finally, three cracks have been repaired; one on the top, one on the side and on the back of the body. This is truly a quintessential vintage mahogany dreadnought that is hard to put down when you hear its fundamental and characteristic tone. Since 1956 this Martin D18 has developed impressively and the result is a great sounding guitar; very direct and warm with a large projection.

ABOUT US

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 info@thefellowshipofacoustics.com 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.
