What we say:
At A Glance:
This must be in the running for one of the greatest, most playable and most satisfying guitars we've ever encountered! Hand-made in England, the Atkin OM37 is, as you'd expect, an Orchestral Model guitar with a body that's slightly on the smaller side and a playability that is second to none. This model is a real all-rounder, though fingerstyle players in particular will take to the note separation and projection offered here. What is there to like? Everything.
Features We Love:
The Sitka Spruce top has been subjected to extreme heat in order to dry out all moisture and nutrients. The result is a sound that has an uncanny resemblance to century-old acoustic guitars! Unbelievable.
Herringbone purfling, aged Nitro finish, Ebony board, Mother of Pearl fret markers...this guitar flat out owns it.
This wonderful instrument is greater than the sum of its considerable parts. It is a real joy to play: the smaller body and 25.4" scale length combine with the woods and bracing to make this guitar sing out with a voice that impresses and encourages in equal measure.
- Fantastic build quality
- Wonderful looks
- Superlative sound
- Amazingly satisfying playing experience.
