Thanks to Atkin's scalloped bracing system, the LG47 produces a loud and healthy tone despite being a small bodied guitar. This, along with the choice of woods, make the Atkin LG47 not only great for fingerstyle, which is the bread and butter of this guitar, but also for flat picking, hybrid picking and light strumming when backing vocals for example. In hand, the LG47 feels light and fun to play. Atkin Guitars chose (wisely in our opinion) to feature on this guitar their standard C shape neck instead of the common baseball bat neck size found on vintage Gibson LG examples. In our opinion you will find the Atkin LG47 a great singer songwriter companion. We also think that this guitar will work well with an L.R Baggs system, should you decide to amplify your Atkin LG47 guitar down the road.
