Inspired by the original Gibson guitar of the 1920s and 30s most famously associated with Robert Johnson, the Atkin L-1 combines the unique character of this special instrument with updated playability and build quality. Following the original body shape closely, a 12th fret neck joint means that the guitar’s vintage-style rectangular bridge sits right in the middle of the rounded lower bout, really driving the soundboard for a rich, powerful tone. There’s all the bark and bite that blues players love, but a whole range of other shades too that will please traditional players in every genre. A modified X-braced pattern provides the response and sustain that modern players expect, while the bound mahogany neck – available in both 43mm and 45mm nut widths – provides the kind of playability that bluesmen of the 1930s could only dream of.
