As the name might suggest, the beautiful OM37 is Atkin Guitars’ Orchestra Model. Boasting a compact body with pronounced curves, it offers a surprisingly bold sound that could be considered the perfect all-rounder.
Premium OM Design
The Orchestra Model shape is more compact than the classic Dreadnought or Jumbo design. The challenge for luthiers is to be able to produce an OM guitar that still offers a rich, responsive sound. Atkin Guitars have taken steps to ensure that this is indeed the case.
Carefully selected torrified Sitka Spruce is used for the top. Combined with their hand-scalloped bracing, it resonates with a charming, full-bodied sound that has to be heard to be believed. CITES-certified Indian Rosewood back & sides add extra warmth and tightness to the sound, making the OM37 perfect for folk & fingerstyle players.
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:
