In our 'Home of a thousand guitars', you will find not only acoustic guitars, but also a wide range of vintage electric guitars. We regularly manage to lay our hands on a sixties or even fifties Fender Stratocasters and Telecasters. Just recently we got hold of a very clean Gibson ES 335 Sunburst from 1959 in virtually original condition.
Because we love guitars, what we have in our shop doesn't stop there. You are also in the right place for vintage gypsy jazz, flamenco or classical guitars. Vintage mandolins and banjo’s? We’ve got them!
Knowledgeable and experienced
Vintage guitars play an important role in the history of The Fellowship of Acoustics, as the company started in 2001 with four vintage Martin guitars that founder Rudi Bults got a hold of in the United States and within a week he managed to sell them to four very happy customers.
After that, hundreds of vintage guitars went through his hands and now The Fellowship of Acoustics is one of the largest vintage guitar dealers in Europe. Over the years, all Fellows who work here have gained a lot of experience in viewing, judging and playing vintage guitars. We buy them, trade them in and because of we have been doing so enthusiastically for years, we are very fortunate to have a unique, worldwide network of collectors, professional musicians, studios, guitar builders and of course many other vintage guitar lovers.
