Atkin The Forty-Three J43 Acoustic Guitar in Aged Finish

Handmade in the UK - pays homage to the legendary banner-era J-45

PLEASE NOTE: DESPITE BEING NEW, THIS GUITAR HAS BEEN PURPOSEFULLY AGED AND MADE TO LOOK LIKE A USED, LIVED-IN, WELL-PLAYED, RELIC-TYPE GUITAR. THERE ARE THEREFORE SIGNS OF WEAR & TEAR & MARKS THAT MAY APPEAR TO LOOK LIKE FINGERMARKS. THESE ARE ENTIRELY INTENTIONAL. IF YOU WANT A GUITAR THAT LOOKS SHINY, NEW & PRISTINE, THIS IS NOT FOR YOU!

Forty-Three

The Forty Three pays homage to the legendary banner-era J-45, a classic design that has inspired us both as players and guitar makers. After working with the Buddy Holly Guitar Foundation to recreate Buddy’s 1943 J-45, we decided to permanently add this exacting replica to our range.

Direct and powerful, but with an easy-playing shorter scale length, it’s easy to see why this guitar has been favoured by so many singer-songwriters over the years. The big-bodied J-45 shape, combined with a Sitka spruce top and mahogany back and sides, delivers warm mids, solid lows and great definition. It’s a timeless acoustic guitar tone.

At Atkin, we pride ourselves on our finishes. Alister details, sprays and polishes every guitar by hand with our own nitrocellulose blend, soon to be available through Rothko and Frost.

The Forty-Three is available in two finish options, ‘Aged’ and ‘Mirror’.
