The Altamira M guitar is a Selmer-Maccaferri style instrument suitable for gypsy jazz music popularised by the great Django Reinhardt. This is the D-hole model and features a beautiful flamed maple back and sides and a matte finish.
With the Jazz/Orchestre form, the Altamira M has a fairly large body with squarish bouts and a cutaway in the upper right bout. The strings pass over a movable bridge and two 'moustache' markers are fixed to the soundboard to help position the bridge. Notably, the guitar features a gently arched top - achieved by bending a flat piece of wood rather than by the violin-style carving used in archtop guitars. All-in-all, the Altamira M guitar is a faithful take on a classic guitar that captures the punch, growl, and crunch that make Gypsy Jazz guitars so alluring.
Includes hard case.
