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...

Altamira M01 Antique

SPECIAL!!! Free Setup Included with all Altamira Guitars (Includes Fret Dress, Custom Bridge, Restring, Tailpiece Leather, Action and Truss Rod Adjustment.) A

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 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!

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!
