The J45 Rosewood Series
The Atkin J-45 is based on the classic Gibson models of the 1940s, known for their big open sound and warm, woody mid-range. The shorter 24.9-inch scale length is a big part of that, as is the classic slope-shouldered body shape, but our spin on the J-45 is not just by the numbers. Having repaired many vintage examples over the years, we’ve come to know just what makes this incredible guitar tick. Our J-45 is popular among singer-songwriters, rock and country players just as you’d expect, but it’s grand tone is also favoured by folk, flatpicking and fingestyle guitarists.
