Atkin Guitars are becoming a real head-turner at TME these days. What makes folks sit up and take note, with so many great instruments already in our showroom? Simply put ~ sound. Atkin's unique scalloped bracing configuration and super-thin aged lacquer finish result in a guitar that's surprisingly open and big-sounding (they've got a lot more oomph in the low end than you'd expect).

This Essential 000 is Atkin's take on the revered 000-18 and they've really carved out a comfortable niche with this one. It has the general flavor and texture of a Martin with the precision and clarity of a Collings. It's a refreshing combination that offers a unique tonal pallet that we don't hear in other traditional lines. Kudos to the folks at Atkin for staying original in a very crowded field.

We also admire Atkin's embrace of a naturally aged finish. And his sunbursts are beautifully applied. Vibe. Tone. Playability. If you want it all, produced with the expertise of a boutique-level workshop, we suggest giving an Atkin serious consideration. Priced with the builder's own hard case, made by TKL.
