Name: Alister Atkin
Company: Atkin Guitars
Town: Womenswold, Canterbury
Region: Kent
Description: Alister Atkin built his first guitar at school and went on to study guitar making at the London School of Furniture in 1992. There he studied classical guitar construction under the direction of David Whiteman. After graduating Alister went to work with Canterbury based Archtop maker Andy Crockett and pursued his real interest: steel-string acoustic guitars. Sharing a workshop with a well established guitar maker gave Alister the opportunity to meet players and see some of the best instruments in the area. During the years that followed Alister was able to experiment and develop his ideas.
