Alister Atkin The 43 Sunburst Relic

After working with the Buddy Holly Guitar Foundation to recreate Buddy Holly's 1943 J-45, Alister Atkin decided to permanently add this exacting replica to his Historic Series range. The Forty Three pays homage to the legendary banner-era J-45, a classic design that has inspired thousands, and perhaps by now - millions- of guitarplayers and numerous guitar makers. Alister made a new relic guitar, falling in the category like it- or hate it, not everyone's cup of tea, but many will like it a lot. Don't buy it for the relic work, simply buy it because it is Phenonomal sounding! Alister even 'baked' the top to dry out all the moisture and mature as much as possible.. and he reached his go. Listen to the clip, the guitar already has an amazing matured vintage tonal character that is truly inspiring.

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

These are amazing sounding guitars, check out the example Video on acousticfellowship youtube channel.
