With the new Essential D, you get 100% Atkin quality and tone – stripped down to the bare essentials.
The Essential D is made with an aged North American Sitka spruce top and braced with pre-war scalloped bracing. Mahogany back and sides are complimented by a lightweight mahogany neck with an ebony fingerboard – just like some of the finest Pre-War guitars.
Alister details, sprays and polishes every guitar by hand with his own nitrocellulose blend and for the Essential D he’s come up with the thinnest nitro finish he can shoot while protecting the instrument against the rigours of life on the road. A very light ageing of the lacquer gives the instrument a ‘played-in’ feel.
Introduced at the London Guitar Show in December 2017, this is his newest guitar model.
Comes with a vintage-style Atkin case.
