Rodrigo Shopis / Favino D Hole 12 Fret Gypsy Guitar / 2014 / Guitar

New York based Rodrigo Shopis has long been known for his deep knowledge of Selmer Maccaferri guitars and his ability to interpret this rich luthiery tradition in new and exciting ways. His innovative designs have caught the attention of many top players, including such luminaries as Samson Schmitt, Dorado Schmitt, and Biel Ballaster. This instrument features solid Indian rosewood back and sides, a rare feature as most Selmer style guitars have laminate back and sides. This guitar is outfitted with a handsome rosewood binding and a nickel tailpiece. The tone of this guitar is full bodied, with a tight, clear low end and nice chimey highs that you wouldn't normally expect from a large bodied D hole design. The sound is also very open and complex, with an excellent projection. Besides the usual signs of playwear on the body and neck does this pre-owned guitar also show some dings and scuffs on the top, sides and back. The bindings have some dings and a few lacquer chips as well. Overall in very good condition and the guitar travels in the original softshell 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.
