Atkin / Alister Essential OM Prewar Style Aged / Guitar

Atkin Guitars was founded in Canterbury, England, in 1995. Since then, they've grown steadily from a one-man operation building a handful of one-of-a-kind instruments each year to become one of the UK’s leading acoustic guitar makers. Still in Canterbury, now a two-man operation, they build around 80 guitars a year, each one still handmade and still completely unique. Atkin continues to impress us with every instrument that enters our shop. The passion and soul with which these instruments are built make their way straight to the eyes and ears, and make it hard not to fall in love with these outstanding sounding and great looking beauties. The Atkin Essential OM-37 Relic is one of the most amazing guitars in our stock and based on one of the most legendary steel string acoustic guitar designs of all time, the traditional 1937 orchestra model. OM18, the Alister Atkins vision of the classic OM features an Atkin based baked / torrified Sitka Spruce top in combination with Mahogany back and sides, and you can hear the difference i promise you!this tonewood combination gives the guitar a full and focused sound with great tonal dynamics and great response. The Mahogany neck has been fitted with an Ebony fingerboard and 43mm (1 11/16") nutwidth, which makes this a perfectly comfortable guitar for either intricate fingerpicking or strumming. This is the very first Atkin Essential OM Alister made, and the greatest feature is hands down the aging treatment. This means the guitar has been aged from both the inside and outside in the most authentic and vintage way which contributes to the superb projection and the rich, full tone. 645mm (25.4") scale length, 56mm (2 3/16").  Includes hardshell case.

ABOUT US

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 info@thefellowshipofacoustics.com 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.
