Showroom Flaw: Finish Crack lower bout at the seam - no structural crack - guitar under full warranty

We're proud to be the first US dealer for Atkin Guitars. These guitars are made in a 2-men workshops in Canterbury, UK. Only 70 are made each year! Despite a limited production, they have grown a strong fan base in the last decade. Elvis Costello and Sir Paul Mc Cartney own their very own Atkin guitar!

 

From Alister Atkin:

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 Historic Series range. 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.

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.

It was our aim to replicate not just the sound but the look and feel of the banner J-45s. Our custom aged nitrocellulose finish is designed to capture aura of a guitar that has been played for the last 70 years.
