Altamira Capriccio Cedar / Cocobolo Classical Guitar

1 only in stock

The Altamira Capriccio model is a spectacular concert Spanish style guitar with the highest grade solid Cedar top and solid Cocobolo back and sides, featuring intricate matched rosette / binding and french polished by hand. 

This guitar simply needs to be heard to be believed - the tone is enormous. Rich, deep basses and round, thick trebles, with incredible dynamic range and wonderful touch sensitivity. The volume is breathtaking, easily projecting with the lightest touch, and there's seemingly endless headroom. The ultra-light carbon fibre neck reinforcement increases sustain and clarity, without adding weight to the finely-crafted body. A truly stellar concert classical guitar.

Crafted by hand by Yao Xin (Hanson Yao), a highly respected and popular luthier from China. With an early background in woodworking and craft at the China Art Academy, followed by a stint in Spain to study classical guitar making in the early 2000s, Hanson now makes the finest instruments for the concert stage.

Hanson’s guitars have been played in concert by the world’s finest guitarists including Rene Izquierdo, David Russell, Aniello Desiderio, Irina Kulikova, Martha Masters, Pavel Steidl, Ricardo Gallen, Elina Chekan and many more.
