We love these small-bodied wonders! Our ‘Forty Seven’ is a lightly built X-braced guitar. It sounds incredible for fingerstyle playing, and also has enough size and punch to make it great for flatpicking as well.
Our scalloped bracing system brings out the best in this smaller body, giving a bass tone that is strong and more commanding than you would expect from an instrument of this size.
Many pre-war examples had “baseball” bat sized necks but we add our standard C-shape Atkin neck.
