He makes the best pre war acoustic guitars in this country. I highly recommend this guitar.It has a beautifully resonant tone which is both deep and clear at the same time. Exactly what you would want from a dreadnaught model. The guitar comes with an Atkin fully fitted and lined case. (See Photos) any questions just ask me. This is what Atkin guitars says about their guitars. Atkin guitars are a brand of boutique hand made acoustic guitars from Canterbury, England. Headed up by Alister Atkin, the company is a small operation of four people who pour their talent, skill and dedication into each guitar they make. Atkin guitars are often compared favourably to genuine vintage acoustic guitars.
This is thanks to their level of quality, tone and workmanship. Their guitars are based mainly on classic heritage American designs. These include the Orchestral model, the 000 and the Dreadnought. Every Atkin guitar top (and the wood for the bracing) is'baked'. A process called torrefaction subjects the tiber to high temperatures in a low oxygen environment.This dries out the wood and alters and crystallizes the resins within the wood grain. It speeds up the natural process which eventually gives vintage guitars such a beautiful tone. The item "Alistair Atkin Hand Made Guitar" is in sale since Monday, May 18, 2020.
