AA – AM Special

The AA – AM Special

Our signature shape. The Atkin Auditorium or AA has been designed in consultation with many or our top players to bring together the finest points of our best loved models. We’ve worked hard to achieve a perfectly balanced guitar, in tone, in looks and in your hands. With its narrow waist and rounded shoulders, the AA marries together the intimacy and responsiveness of an OM and the sweet open tones of a Small Jumbo. It is, we think, a bit of a modern classic.
