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 guitar features solid Indian rosewood back and sides, cedar top, and a sapelli neck. The higher quality materials of this solid wood model produce a richer and drier tone similar to many handmade European guitars. Additionally, this model features higher quality open tuners and 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!
