Our OOO-series (pronounced “triple-oh”) guitars are based very closely on the pre-war guitars which are revered by so many players. In the pre-war era there were a lot of spec changes with OOO-series guitars. Rather than give you a full history lesson, we’d like to let you know how we are currently making them at Atkin.
For our standard Atkin OOO37 without a slotted headstock we build as standard to the following specs:
Our OOO37 is prized by players who love sweet, singing trebles on a versatile all-rounder.
At Atkin, we pride ourselves on our finishes. Alister details, sprays and polishes every guitar by hand with our own nitrocellulose blend.
Featuring a cracked finish top, light staining and ageing on the binding, and a vintage patina, Alister’s retro finishes are totally unique in the acoustic guitar world – warm to the touch and still responsive.
