Welcome Atkin Guitars to the A G F...Glad to see your taking quality control so seriously with the smell and tap test!
Your taste test for spraying finishes is by far the ultimate means of determining the quality of lacquer and nitrocellulose products!!!
You guys look like you were haveing a blast...

I love it! But full of very subtle English humour. Will our American cousins get it?

This is just another reason I have to purchase a 'forty three' Atkin guitar! Fantastic video from Alister and the crew, great sense of humour.

Your newish website looks fantastic I particularly like the look of the 'L1' and 'Forty three'. I will hopefully be ordering one in the coming year .

Awesome picking too!

Brilliant...I'd buy a guitar from these guys just based on the thoroughness of taste testing the varnish. No one else does that.....

Having tasted Alister's tea last week, I can vouch for its...delicious nitrocellulose!

And whatever the secret of that mallet, it does make some great sounding and smelling guitars!

Alister the L1 and the forty three look really fantastic

I've seen a few short clips of them on youtube are you planning to record a demo of them at some point?
