I found this very rare acoustic guitar in a closet while cleaning out my parent's house.

Stelling Guitar Model SHD145
Serial number 66 of 101
Produced by Stelling Banjo Works of Afton, VA
Built by Huss & Dalton Guitar Company of Staunton, VA
Dated 01/05/1998

This is what I have learned...

Only 101 Stelling Guitars were made during a period from 1990-2002. They have been owned by Larry Sparks, Russell Moore (IIIrd Tyme Out), Charlie Sizemore, James King, Gary Brewer (Kentucky Ramblers), Gary Ferguson, and Leigh Gibson of the Gibson Brothers.

Geoff Stelling formed Stelling Banjo Works in 1974. He is considered among the best banjo makers there is. Jeff Huss began building instruments in 1984 as an apprentice at Stelling. He built several Huss guitars, and then built a few with the Stelling name on them for re-sale by Geoff Stelling. In 1993 he decided to leave Stelling to move into his home shop and build guitars full time. Some with his name, and some under the Stelling name. Mark Dalton became employed by Stelling in 1994. On a visit to Jeff's shop in the summer of 1995, the two began formulating ideas that led to the creation of Huss and Dalton Guitar Company, Inc. They continued to make guitars with the Stelling name on them for re-sale by Geoff Stelling until 2002.

My Dad bought Stelling Guitar #41 from Larry Sparks at a bluegrass festival and fell in love. From what I have been told, he approached Geoff about custom-building a guitar out of rare wood that he supplied, modeled after a Martin D45. The wood and several custom-touches make this a truly one-of-a-kind instrument. Dad was already in very poor health by 1998, and this guitar very likely rarely left the house. Personally, I have only vague recollections of seeing it. Since his passing in 2003, the guitar has remained untouched and I had completely forgotten it existed.

Here's a video of IIIrd Tyme Out performing "Erase All The Miles" featuring a Stelling RHD-100 (serial number 007):

"This guitar would make you forget about a Martin." - banjoman56
"The workmanship is amazing - surpassing anything that Martin was doing at the time (and probably currently)." - WildJimbo 
"Stelling guitars are great guitars." - docdobro
"The Stelling I own has a deeper and warmer sound than my 1960 brazilian Martin D-28. It's closer to a D-35." - Ruud de Bruin, The Netherlands
"It's an exceptional instrument in any way." - howsy-bee 
"They are very nice guitars with great sound. I also have a 2004 Martin HD35 and the Stelling, which is modeled after the HD28 with a Tony Rice sound hole and pick guard, beats the HD35 in an A/B everytime." - jrfmgb

To call this instrument rare is a bit of an understatement. It is truly a piece of guitar history.

*"In the beginning Jeff Huss was still fine-tuning the models. The model numbers of the early ones may vary slightly regardless of Stelling's own website information . The Russell Moore guitar I own is an RHD 100 (label). However the warranty card that came with mentions RHD 120 while the Stelling chronology page indicates RHD 125. According to Jeff Huss the RHD 100 was the last one with the normal soundhole and forward shifted bracing. After that he used the enlarged soundhole based on Clarence White's D-28, forcing the bracing backwards." - Ruud de Bruin, The Netherlands
