Altamira guitars are the finest quality Selmer copies produced in Asia. This company makes the Manouche Latcho Drom models for Dell'Arte. The instrument you see here is branded under their own name and is identical to the Latcho Drom models that Dell'Arte imports. Dell'Arte upgrades the tailpiece, tuners, and bridge and does some setup work. The Altamira guitars have more basic hardware and bridge options but these things can be upgraded by our tech Josh (see the options tab.) Also,the Altamiras have a more modern, ergonomic C shaped neck. The Manouche Latcho Drom guitars have a very large and uncomfortable U shaped neck.

Altamira guitars are THE best Asian made Selmer copies we've seen. Very traditional in sound with a bright high end and a lot of bark! Much drier and crisper then other guitars in this price range. Very French sounding yet at an Asian import price.

This guitar features laminated Rosewood back and side, Spruce top, and a Mahogany neck. This model has a unique antique finish. An oil based varnish is hand applied to the top while the back sides are treated with a light, water based satin finish. It looks like an old Selmer from the 40s, and the lighter finish really helps boost the tone and projection of the guitar!

Altamira M01 Antique

As a beginner in the genre, I was tempted to cheap-out on my first purchase but I figured I might ask Michael for some guidance on which guitars he would recommend. He pointed me in the direction of the Altamira guitars and I'm glad he did because this instrument is great! The tone, feel, and projection of this guitar is amazing and it's hard to even consider opting for the traditional M01 because the "antique" version is beautiful.

With some excellent guidance from Michael at djangobooks.com, I purchased an Altamira M01 antique. Upon first glance, I was immediately taken by the beautiful rustic finish of the top. Once I started playing, I was totally immersed in this guitar and had a hard time putting it down. Tone, projection, playability, everything was far more than I expected. I find myself using it for more than Gypsy Jazz, I played a solo chord melody gig with it and loved it. I received many compliments on my sound. I also accompanied a clarinetist who played several styles of jazz. Every style worked perfectly with this guitar. The clarinetist and many listeners were very complimentary of the tone. This guitar is a real treat and one of the best values I have ever had in an instrument! Highly recommended!
