Martin D3-18 Limited Edition guitar of the month May 1991. The D3-18 was the first production 3-piece back mahogany guitar made by the Martin Guitar Company. In the same style as the original prewar D-18, the D3-18 is constructed with a genuine ebony fingerboard and bridge, and the 'X' bracing has been shifted forward to a position 1" from the soundhole. The solid Sltka spruce top is finished with aging toner and hand polished lacquer gives this instrument an aged appearance similar to its vintage counterpart. The headstock bears chrome tuning machines with special buttons, delicately embossed on both sides with a Martin "M" design. The low profile mahogany neck is equipped with an adjustable truss rod. The headstock is square and tapered like the Martin guitars of the 1930's. The fingerboard is bound with tortoise color material and inlaid with a contrasting black/white inlay. Mother of pearl diamond and square position markers complete the vintage look of this guitar. The fluted edges of the ebony bridge are also Inlaid with mother of pearl diamonds. Black 'Style 21' bridge pins inlaid with white dots have been chosen to enhance the simple yet elegant front view of the D3-18. The matched mahogany wings and center wedge used to form the back of the D3-18 are tastefully accentuated with herringbone inlay. Attention to detail, even on the back of the guitar, Is a time honored tradition at the Martin Guitar Company. The D3-I8 comes with a limited edition label signed by C. F.

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.
