Manufacturer's ID: J43
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.
