Maton / Messiah Eric Johnson Owned & Signed / Guitar

This is an absolutely incredible guitar. This Maton was built for, and was owned by, Eric Johnson. This Maton Messiah was built by their Custom Shop and thus shows off particularly beautiful pieces of wood, such as the beautiful back and sides made of Indian rosewood or the tightly grained European spruce top. This is a great guitar for any player, whether your style involves a pick or just your fingers, and whether you have songs like 'Cliffs of Dover' and 'Manhattan' to your credit or not. This Maton simply plays and sounds great. After Eric, this guitar was in possession of a collector, but Eric has played on it and signed the back of the headstock. A couple of traces on the body and top make the condition excellent, otherwise it is really clean. Comes in a hardshell case with its certificate of authenticity. Inside the Maton branded Hiscox case you'll also find a Maton Custom Shop USB Flashdrive with pictures of the entire building proces.

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.


We do speak English, Dutch and German! Feel free to call in any of these languages and ask your questions! Call 0031-523-232205




We LOVE Guitars, and buy and trade for most stringed instruments. But we also do consignment, make appraisals for insurance or put you on our watch list. Please check the Buying & Trading page for details.
