What we say:
At A Glance:
There are few propositions in the acoustic guitar world as delicious as a masterfully made slotted-headstock parlour guitar. Atkin evidently know this, and gamefully oblige us with an instrument that is endlessly rewarding.
Features We Love:
The Atkin O37 has a small body, a shorter scale length and a neck that joins at the 12th fret. All of this helps to make the guitar feel intimate and close to the player as they play. The slotted headstock adds a different type of tension, too. The flat 16" radius Ebony fingerboard is a lovely surface to play on, making the whole experience a joy.
Atkin guitars are all hand-made in Canterbury by a team of 7 builders. Their artisanal skills and commitment to quality are obvious the second you cast eyes (or hands) upon any of their instruments. This O37 is no exception.
The Atkin O37 is made with a torrefied Sitka Spruce top, East Indian Rosewood body and a Mahogany neck. Wood does not get any better! The top has been baked to remove moisture and radically improve the sound and response.
