Martin / D35S 12 Fret Brazilian / 1969 / Guitar

The D35S is a 12-fret dreadnought and a rarity on the market because it comes from an era when mainly 14-fret dreadnoughts were sold. The last serial number for which Martin used Brazilian rosewood was 254497, so this 1969 D35S with serial number 248255 still features the legendary combination of Brazilian rosewood and a spruce top. The three-piece back gives the guitar a bit more compression and a hefty bass response compared to other dreadnoughts. In addition, this D35S is distinguished by the 12 fret construction, which allows the bridge to be placed a little more to the back, which in turn benefits the volume. It looks very clean for its age but, in addition to the playwear and dings, it obviously does not escape the traces of time such as weather checking. It also has a repaired crack on the side of the body, and the top also has a very small crack along the fingerboard. It is certainly in very good condition and a true joy to play! Comes in a hardshell case with TFOA passport.

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.
