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.

Altamira M01 Antique
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!
