Altamira guitars are the finest quality Selmer copies produced in Asia. This company makes the Manouche Latcho Drom models for Dell'Arte. Dell'Arte upgrades the tailpiece, tuners, and bridge and does some setup work. The Altamira guitars have more basic hardware and bridge options but these things can be upgraded by our tech Josh (see the options tab.)
Altamira guitars are THE best Asian made
Selmer copies we've seen. Very traditional in sound with a bright high
end and a lot of bark! Much drier and crisper than other guitars in this price range. Very French sounding yet at an Asian import price.
This guitar features solid mahogany back and sides, spruce 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.
