Martin / Size 1-26 Pre Civil War / Guitar For Sale

With its compact and elegant appearance, this Martin Size 1 is a guitar that has stood the test of time beautifully. The guitar was considered a standard size guitar in the mid-19th century, and at that time it was strung with so-called 'gut strings'. With that in mind, the guitar is now strung with nylon strings. This Martin Size 1 features the characteristic C.F. Martin New York stamps on the back of the headstock, on the heel block, and on the center strip in the body. These stamps were used on Martin's first models and therefore the guitar can be dated to the period before 1867. The guitar features a Brazilian rosewood back and sides and a spruce top. The binding is accompanied by a purfling with a rope pattern, and the soundhole is graced by a Style 28 rosette. The cedar neck features an ebony fingerboard and rosewood headstock overlay. This Size 1 is in good condition considering its age. The top and body have some repaired cracks, but the guitar is stable and easy to play. The guitar is a beautiful piece from Martin's rich history, and is an asset to any guitar collection. Consignment.

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.
