2008 Atkin SJ Standard – £1849

NEW ARRIVAL  Since 1995 Alister Atkin has become one of the forerunners in British luthiery, all of his guitars have a genuine hand made feel, the tone and playability of which are superb. This example is an SJ model, featuring a Cedar top with Indian Rosewood back and sides. The Cedar / Rosewood combination give great warmth, clarity and definition, and the body size gives fantastic balance. The resonance is probably the main thing you notice – single notes chime, and the sustain is really impressive. Overall it’s a great all rounder, very comfortable to play and even better to listen to. The guitar is in good condition, with some light surface dings and noticeable wear on the back of the neck. It has a Fishman soundhole pickup fitted and comes in it’s original Atkin hard case.
