The OM – AM Sepcial
The Atkin OM is one of our best selling models. The longer scale length and compact body size, which is narrower and shallower than a dreadnought while still delivering a full, well-defined sound and plenty of volume, make the OM very popular among fingerpickers but in truth this is a great all-rounder. For lots of players, our OM is their ‘desert island’ guitar – if they had to pick just one, this is the one that can do it all. The Atkin OM is based on the Martin model of the 1930s, featuring pre-war scalloped bracing. We’ve made subtle modifications over the years in response to feedback from pro players until arriving at what we believe is the definitive OM.
