What we say:
At A Glance:
This Atkin Dreadnought is a fantastic example of the company's ability to make world-class guitars. Stripped of superfluous decoration, the Essential D is designed and assigned to be your songwriting and playing companion for life! With warmth and clarity both available, this all-rounder excels in all areas.
Features We Love:
From the scalloping to the fretboard inlays, Atkin have delivered a guitar steeped in heritage. It pays off brilliantly: the Essential D is an understated beauty with a thrilling tone.
This lovely instrument sounds like a century old classic, and that is partly because the Sitka Spruce top has been torrefied. This means that the timber has been treated to high temperatures in order to remove moisture and nutrients. It basically speeds up the natural ageing process, resulting in stunning sounds.
The Relic finish is sympathetically handled, bringing a soft patina of age that works perfectly in concert with the thin-skin Aged nitrocellulose lacquer to make for a convincingly aged appearance.
Who Is It For?
The acoustic player seeking an authentic looking aged acoustic built with top notch quality. The dreadnought body is great for a variety of styles but excels at strumming and projecting it's sound in a bold fashion.
