Atkin / 00037 Aged Lefty / Guitar

Atkin's 000 model has the same dimensions as an OM, but just like the model it's based on it has a slightly shorter scale length. This provides a much more looser feel and sound, providing a fuller tone than the snappy and bright Orchestra Model would do. This also makes the 000 a personal favourite for blues players like Eric Clapton, as bending is quite a bit easier than on an OM. Alister Atkin started baking his tops in 2011 with the express purpose of achieving improved stability. Baking, or torrifying, reduces the moisture content and also crystallises the resins within the grain, a process that happens naturally over many years and has long been thought of as a reason vintage guitars sound so great. Atkin has certainly mastered the art of baking these tops, and you might even say the brand is famous for it nowadays. They even take it a little bit further and bake all the bracing wood as well, which is European Red Spruce in this case. The solid Indian rosewood back and sides, combined with the mahogany neck and baked Sitka spruce top, provide a resonant, warm, but also clear sound with a strong attack. Due to the convincing heavy aging of the nitro lacquer, the guitar gives the impression that it has been on the road for decades, but nothing could be further from the truth! The guitar is supplied with a certificate of authenticity in a TKL hardshell case.

I have always been opposed to being trapped into a job eight hours a day to purchase the free time to do what I enjoy. That’s why i started the Fellowship of Acoustics. The fellowship of acoustics was founded by Rudi Bults, Guitarist and obsessed with tone and wood. The idea was offering real expertise when trading and selling the finest instruments in the world from our showroom in Bergentheim, Netherlands. Helping others find the right tools and enjoying an atmosphere that’s unhurried, honest and informative that’s my go. We are nothing like the "supermarket" style music stores, but specialize in string-things only. We are widely known for Flattop guitars but also sell electric, mandolins & banjo’s, amps, parts, and accessories. Our store has earned the reputation for being a great place to shop for the best products and service.
It is our hope that this new website - much more than a list of "gear" for sale - will serve as an example of our commitment to offering a more personal approach, a friendly atmosphere, and an ultimately more satisfying experience for our friends and customers.
If you have any questions just dial +31-523-232205 or e-mail My name is Rudi Bults, and I’m always here to help out. Wherever possible, we would recommend that you visit our store and experience our instruments and service first hand. However, because of our high standards you can be confident of ordering online from us. We hope you enjoy your visit to our site, and welcome your feedback.
