    I can understand why @stuart is so enamored with THIS GUITAR.

    Love the look and sound. Someone's gonna have a very special guitar in their hands when they pull the trigger and buy that baby. :-bd
    I Love my Altamira M01D, however this has a much more GYPSY TONE…
    Then again, Look who's playing it. :-c

    Very unconvincing antiquing in my opinion .. they need to get hooijdonk or barault in there with a greasy rag and some car keys to scratch it up a bit more :ar!

    @stuart
    When Barault makes an antique finish guitar for under a grand, I'll be first in the queue.
    made me laugh and I want one also.

    hmm .. well you can probably get an antiqued barault plectrum for under a grand .. :rofl:

    Czech luthier Vit Cach makes some pretty decent antiqued look instruments too. I can't find any website of his unfortunately, I just saw/played them at Samoreau last year.

    Once I get up off the Floor myself, I gotta get out of Cyberland, and hit the streets.
    With laughter in my heart anyway.

    Great Day All

    I know Vit Cach. He makes excellent guitars! With a very refined antiqued look. And a fat dark powerful old fashioned sound!

    I met him in Django Memorial in Augsburg 2014, and played longly his guitars: they really sound great!

    Here is a gorgeous one: [url="http://"]http://www.benoit-de-bretagne.com/forum//viewtopic.php?f=8&t=13278[/url]

    Samson and Dorado Schmidt also played them, and enjoyed a lot:



    Vit Cach has now a FaceBook page here: https://www.facebook.com/cachguitars

    Impressive, they go very much in the same direction of Killy Nonis "antique" finish , although in that area the man is still unsurpassed IMO.

    Antique finish seems to be all the rage among the luthiers.
    Risto Ivanovski, who made my guitar, has one too:

    Good job on the Altamira.

    Observation..
    Shiny brass and Phillips head screws..a giveaway.
    Soften the sharp corners on the bridge "slightly".
    Rub the leather a bit to get the fish glue off it.

    If the brass is lacquered.. remove it.. then treat the brass.
    Replace the Phillips heads with slotted screws, after antiquing same.

    I'd like to see another. Impressive.
