The Forty Three – BP

Style: J | Series: Black Pearl, Slope Shoulder

The Forty Three is both 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 slope shoulder shape, combined with our Baked Sitka spruce top and mahogany back and sides, delivers warm mids, solid lows and great definition. It’s a timeless acoustic guitar tone.

The Forty-Three is available in two finish options, ‘Aged’ and ‘Mirror’.
