Martin / Special Edition D28 CSN Gerry Tolman Tribute #198/250 / 2007 / Guitar

This Martin D28 from 2007 is a tribute from the band CSN to a dear friend of them, Gerry Tolman. This guitar is number 198 out of very limited stock, making it quite the rare find. Gerry Tolman was the manager of the band CSN existing of David Crosby, Steven Stills and Graham Nash. Unfortunatly, Gerry passed away after a car accident in 2005. In collaboration with Martin Guitars and Neil Young, a close friend, they found themselves making a special edition of the D28 in which every member of the band contributed in their own way. The inlay for sure looks special with David Crosby's "Schooner" symbol on the 5th fret, Steven Hills' "Southern Cross" on the 7th, Graham Nash's "Winged Heart" on the 12th and Neil Youngs' "Broken Arrow" on the 15th fret; a symbol Neil rarely allowed others to use. This D28 has Indian rosewood back and sides while the top is made of high grade Engelmann spruce finished with an aging toner to give it that extra vintage look. The combination of rosewood and spruce is one very familiar to us and is known for its full, rich and clear sound. It has forward shifted X scalloped bracing with gives it a powerful hit to the tone and a lovely resonating sound. The guitar is in very good condition and has some signs of use that are to be expected. It has some playwear and dings on the body and neck. Furthermore, a Fishman pickup has been installed. Includes a TKL hardshell case with TFOA passport. 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.
