2007 Atkin SJ – £1599
NEW ARRIVAL I’m a big fan of Atkin guitars, and find his approach to guitar building very refreshing. This SJ model is essentially a mini jumbo featuring a Cedar top and Rosewood back and sides. Tonally this guitar is very versatile, when fingerpicked the individual notes chime with great clarity, yet it strums equally well – the Cedar top adds warmth and the Rosewood gives detail. It’s in very good condition, with just the kind of playwear you’d expect from a 13 year old guitar, and a professional neck repair that’s difficult to see. It has an LR Baggs M80 soundhole pickup fitted and comes in it’s original embossed Hiscox flight case.
