L36 Aged

Also referred to as the Parlor guitar (depending on where you are in the world), this design is among the smallest of acoustic guitar body shapes. 1936 was a great year for the Parlor design and the Atkin L36 takes inspiration from those very guitars right at the time they became a pivotal part of American Folk and Blues music. Carefully selected torrified Sitka Spruce is used for the top. Combined with their hand-scalloped bracing, it delivers a tight, bouncy tone that’s perfect for folky fingerpicking and blues-style flatpicking alike.

All Atkin acoustic guitars have an “Aged Finish”. Eight coats of Nitro Lacquer with a yellow tint are applied to give a thin gloss finish, the guitar is then frozen to achieve the  vintage look, which includes lacquer cracks and sinking, plus odd blemishes that you would expect from an old instrument. The tuners, bridge pins and saddle are also cosmetically aged to further enhance the appearance.
