Atkin Essential D Shade Top – Baked Sitka Spruce & Mahogany

Serial Number: 3146
Weight: 4 lbs 4 oz

The Essential D offers 100% Atkin tone – stripped down to the bare essentials! Each Essential D sports a North American Sitka spruce top and braced with pre-war scalloped bracing, all of which is baked in house here at Atkin. Mahogany back and sides are complimented by a lightweight mahogany neck with an ebony fingerboard. The guitar has plenty of power when it’s called for, but responds equally well to lighter touch. This instrument plays beautiful and reward the slightest effort with a rich and complex voice all over the fingerboard.
