What we say:

At A Glance:

Atkins, builders of some of the most beautiful acoustic guitars in the world, have built this fantastic slope-shouldered 'Forty Three' model with a torrefied Sitka Spruce top to really nail that old-world American Sound.

Features We Love:

Hand Made in England

Atkin acoustics are all made by hand in Canterbury by a small team of 7 artisans. The quality speaks for itself in the detailing, sound, projection and finishing. This is a truly world-class instrument.

Torrefied Top

Torrefaction is a process where the timber is essentially baked. This dries out the moisture and changes the tone and response of the wood, effectively ageing the sound. The result is an instrument that is new, but sounds like it's a hundred years old! It's astonishing and, more importantly, it works!

Great 'period' details

The shape is perfect, the burst is exactly the right shade, the headstock decals convince and the finish is an expertly applied coat of gloss nitrocellulose, buffed to a mirror-like finish. Every detail is exactly right. Even the scale-length, at 24.9", helps the Atkin Forty Three capture that particular feel.


  • Perfect looks
  • Outstanding sound
  • Wonderful feel
  • Handmade in UK.


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.
