I decided to take the plunge and buy a high-end guitar, so to help finance that endeavor I'm selling my virtually unplayed Altamira M01. I purchased it in March 2011 from Norman Ort in Germany (this was before Michael was selling them). The only issue is that I had strap buttons placed in the neck and lower body, but these have been professionally removed and nicely retouched. Other than that, it's pretty minty. A few months after buying it I got a great deal on a more upscale M10, so the M01 has just been sitting in its case. The action is around 3mm at the 12th fret. It's plenty loud but not overly bright. A nice affordable quality instrument to get started with gypsy jazz, to use as a backup, or even for a budget-minded serious player. Comes with black faux-alligator hardshell case. $600 plus actual shipping cost. I really can't go any lower than that - I'd just as soon hang on to it. I'll keep this offer up for another week, until July 17. Will then delete this post and consign the guitar at the local music shop. Thanks.
