With a sound far larger than its deceptively small body, Atkin Guitars’ LG47 offers a warm, charming tone and alluring vintage aesthetics.
Premium Slope-Shoulder Design
As the name might suggest, Atkin’s LG47 is inspired by Gibson’s classic LG series, introduced in the ‘40s. It combines a relatively compact slope-shoulder body shape with scalloped X-bracing – despite its smaller size, it doesn’t compromise on tone.
The classic Sitka Spruce & Mahogany combination gives you a surprisingly responsive low-end, while the use of Rosewood and Ebony in the fretboard, bridge and headstock adds a little extra midrange attack. The result is an old-school warmth that’s perfect for fingerpicking and flat-picking alike.
Finish & Electronics Options
Atkin offer two types of finish for all of their guitars: aged and mirror finish. Both are nitrocellulose, but as the name suggests, the former has been painstakingly aged for that vintage vibe. It's also worth noting that while none of the Atkins come with built-in electronics, we'll happily fit some for you. The recommended systems are as follows:
