Vintage Guitars

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.  

Buying a vintage guitar

Are you looking for that one guitar model from that special year? Like an original pre 1945 Martin 00018? Or a Gibson Les Paul Burst from before 1960? It's not easy, but with we do manage to find such extraordinary vintage guitars. We have already been able to help dozens of customers in their search for 'The One'.  Please feel free to contact us to discuss a possible search.

There is a lot of demand for vintage guitars and the supply is very limited. That means buyers have to act quick. So keep an eye on our Instagram,  Facebook  and YouTube channels, as we often offer a sneak preview of the new and vintage  guitars that come into our store. You will get a glimpse of what we have in stock, even before it appears on our site.
