OM37

The OM37

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!

The OM37 is available in two finish options:

Gloss: Our flat high-gloss nitro finish creates a beautiful flat shine that lets the character of the wood and sunburst through.  Just like a new “out of the box” pre-war guitar. Model: OM37

Relic: Featuring a cracked finish top, light staining and ageing on the binding, and a vintage patina, Alister’s relic finishes are totally unique in the acoustic guitar world – warm to the touch and still responsive.  Model: OM37-R

 

Update: Now all OM37’s ship with CITES documentation ensuring ease of travel. This relates to the use of Indian Rosewood which is still used in sustainable quantities under CITES restrictions.
