Here is an excellent Altamira m01, $750 plus shipping.

  • Guitar plays great and sounds great.
  • Custom made bigtone style pickup with high quality LR Baggs under saddle transducer and end pin jack. This combo is way lighter than an actual bigtone.
  • Graph tech bridge saddle
  • Vintage custom pickguard
  • Schaller high quality tuners
  • Frets level, no dead spots

Other info : Nicks here and there and There is a scrape on the top from some mad strummer that was there when I bought the guitar, please see pic. The 9th fret marker was moved to the correct 10th fret, if you look very closely you may see evidence of this.

Guitar is gig ready

    How did you make the bridge? Nice guitar.

    Hi buco, nothing groundbreaking but the result is a good sounding rosewood bridge that you can put a saddle in. Using a 3/8" thick rectangular piece of wood I cut a channel that will later house the bridge saddle. I then glue that to a pen blank and hand carve the rest of the bridge. Sand the hell out of it till it shines then shape it to the top just like we learned here from Michael and Josh.

    Not only that but a saddles of different height too. Very nice job.

    Nice guitar, super-reasonable price. As a happy owner of your guitar's sister (the M-01D) as well as its cousin (the M-10), I can say that Altamira is going to make someone really satisfied. And the 10th fret dot to boot!

    Warning: avoid booting the neck as these instruments are quite fragile.
