With the new Essential D, we’re offering 100% Atkin tone – stripped down to the bare essentials!
Each Essential D is made with an aged North American Sitka spruce top and braced with pre-war scalloped bracing. Mahogany back and sides are complimented by a lightweight mahogany neck with an ebony fingerboard – just like some of the finest Pre-War guitars.
At Atkin, we pride ourselves on our finishes. Alister details, sprays and polishes every guitar by hand with our own nitrocellulose blend, soon to be available through Rothko and Frostover a month-long period.
For the Essential D, we’ve come up with the thinnest nitro finish that we can shoot while protecting the instrument against the rigours of life on the road. Very light ageing of the lacquer gives each instrument a “played-in” feel.
