OM37

Style: OM | Series: 37

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!
