2009 Atkin Jumbo Std – £1799

Alister Atkin is fast becoming a big name in British luthiery. Based in Canterbury his build quality, attention to detail, and fantastic tone and feel are quite exceptional. This example is a jumbo model, featuring a beautiful Bear Claw Spruce top with Indian Rosewood back and sides. It’s unusual to have a jumbo size guitar with a Spruce / Rosewood combination – usually the sound would be too boomy, but the Atkin build spec makes this guitar hugely playable without ever being overpowering. A very versatile instrument, quite orchestral at times, this guitar can take you through all playing styles, subtle enough to play delicate fingerstyle, and rich enough to create a room filling sound. The single note clarity is exceptional, with bags of sustain, it really is a joy to play. Perfect for songwriting, studio use or out on stage. It comes in it’s original Atkin hard case.
