Atkin Guitars
Alister Atkin

Atkin Guitars build a range of individually hand crafted guitars designed to bring the player a unique experience, delivering fantastic playability, tone and aesthetics. We have built guitars for some of the world’s finest musicians across many styles including Paul McCartney, Elvis Costello, Dolly Parton, Squeeze, Eddi Reader, Boo Hewerdine, Richard Hawley, Graham Coxon and many others.

Every now and then, what you might call a ‘real acoustic’ falls into your hands, and reminds you of what this wooden box with strings stretched across it is all about. The Atkin is one such instrument.
