Atkin OM-37 Custom Pomelli
Catalogue No: igATK-OM37Pomelli
The Atkin OM-37 has been one of our favourites for quite a while, and this custom edition with Pomelli back and sides gives a slightly lighter tone than the standard rosewood version. With a torrefied top and it being fully handmade, you can feel the warmth and tone resonate through your body whilst you play - it's quite the experience!
What they say
Our best-selling model of 2017, the Atkin OM is for many players a “desert island” guitar – if they had to pick just one, this is the one that can do it all!
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 the smaller, more ergonomic body, and our hand-scalloped bracing and torrified select Sitka top allows us to make this a reality.
Our 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.
We’ve 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!
