Altamira guitars are crafted by a highly skilled team luthiers, led
by owner/luthier Hanson Yao who was an apprentice of the famed
Rodriguez workshop in Spain. Altamira's Gypsy models are built using old
world methods by just two luthiers who have been specially assigned to
the task. Altamiras have become some of our best selling instruments
over the years, finding their way into the hands of numerous
professionals who have found them up to the task of high level performing
and recording. The tone and projection of these instruments rivals some
of the best handmade instruments, making them a wonderful deal at this
This Favino sized model guitar features laminate Indian rosewood back and sides, a spruce top, and a mahogany neck. The larger 16 1/2" body produces more bass as well as an upper midrange quality that is characteristic of the classic Favino sound.
Favinos were the "go to" guitars of professional Gypsy musicians in the 60s and 70s and are highly sought after today by players and collectors alike. This wonderful replica is the only Favino style guitar available under $3K!
