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 Sitka spruce top and mahogany back and sides, delivers warm mids, solid lows and great definition. It’s a timeless acoustic guitar tone.
