Martin / D45 Brazilian / 1969 / Guitar

After the introduction in 1933, only 91 D45s have been made until it was discontinued in 1942. The top model of Martin's dreadnought line made its return in 1968 and 230 guitars have been made in that and the following year with Brazilian back and sides. To be even more specific, the last serial number with Brazilian rosewood is #254497. What we have here is a 1969 D45 with serial number #254433 so it is actually one of the very last Martin guitars with Brazilian rosewood! It goes without saying that this is an extremely rare guitar, and we can't use enough superlatives to properly describe this gem. What we do want to highlight is how remarkably clean this D45 is! It's obvious that it has been well cared for all these years. Notable features are the large rosewood bridge plate, non-scalloped X-bracing, and original Grover Rotomatic tuning machines. Also in terms of sound it is everything you could wish for. It has the loud 'booming' dreadnought sound, and the Brazilian/spruce combination makes the tone deep, rich, and perfectly balanced. The back of the body has one repaired crack and a few touch-ups. Otherwise it is still in excellent condition and a great example of a wonderfully preserved vintage guitar. T his is the perfect guitar for any discerning collector or musician! Travels 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.
