The OM, or “Orchestra Model” combines a full-scale length with a slightly scaled-down body – it is narrower and shallower than a “D” style guitar like our White Rice or Essential D. The challenge for all OM builders is to allow for a rich, commanding bass in spite of the smaller, more ergonomic body, and our hand-scalloped bracing and torrified select Sitka top allows us to make this a reality.
Atkin's OM is popular with fingerstyle guitar players, but in truth, it’s a great all-rounder and suits singer-songwriters and folk artists as well.
Atkin departed in several ways from the classic pre-war style: A larger top dome, our lifetime-guaranteed neck/body joint, and a two-way truss rod are among the changes, so this isn’t a historical reproduction, but a modern British-made guitar with heaps of mojo!
Gloss: Our flat high-gloss nitro finish creates a beautiful flat shine that lets the character of the wood and sunburst through. Just like a new “out of the box” pre-war guitar. Model: OM37
