I played some of the Atkins at the Guitar Show on Saturday. I actually went back to the stand at about 4 in the afternoon when it had quietened down a bit.
The Essential D was my favourite.
I'm thinking of selling my Martin to fund an Atkin. I think I've come to prefer mahogany back and sides to rosewood in recent years.
I think I'll try a few others though before making that kind of commitment.
So main takeaway is "Every Atkin sounds amazing", followed by "their D28 sounds even better than my HD28". Fuck!Would love to see a 00-37 recorded in similarly high quality as I can see one of those in my future.
Some of the strumming on those videos sounds so rich, it's almost like a 12 string. Really nice, and not too bright. I've got to try one soon. Nice to buy British too.

How are the necks on the 00037 slim profile/Chunky how comparable to martins profiles are they also? Thanks
