2016 Atkin J45 (The Forty Three) in Aged Finish.
In very good condition and nicely played in, this great slope shoulder dreadnought features Atkin's popular aged finish with lacquer checking throughout - back of the neck, headstock, top and body. Nice comfortable narrow neck with a 1 11/16" nut and 24 7/8" scale length. Comes with an Atkin branded Hiscox case.
Hand-crafted in Canterbury, Kent by Alister Atkin and his small team of talented luthiers, the 'Forty Three' pays homage to the legendary banner-era J-45, a classic design that has inspired so many players and guitar makers around the world.
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 baked Sitka spruce top and mahogany back and sides, delivers warm mids, solid lows and great definition. It’s a timeless acoustic guitar tone.
