Altman A-D2 Cocobolo Rosewood 1937 Model New - Built to 1936-1938 specifications entirely by hand, Adirondack Spruce top, forward shifted scalloped Adirondack braces, no tongue brace, 1 ¾’’ bone nut width, Ebony traditional bridge and fingerboard, original style Herringbone top trim, solid bone bridge pins with red-eye inlay, beautiful reddish-orange colored Cocobolo back & sides, Honduran Mahogany neck, thru saddle, Tortoise grain pickguard, traditional style rosette, original style fingerboard inlay, Waverly “Relic” Butterbean tuners, “antiqued” top aging toner, 2 5/16’’ string spacing and varnish finish. These guitars are closest to replicating the “Golden Time” sound we have seen and played as the people who have bought one make similar comments. The latest example is a person who just received his Altman Cocobolo and made this statement: “I have a 1943 D-28 that I have enjoyed for years and is a super guitar, but when I received the Altman and played it, I realized that this new instrument is 95% of the 1943, with more power and better clarity.” “I was shocked, stunned but very pleased.” If you want dry, warm, loose, open tone with power and clarity, a serious vintage vibe, try this one before you pull the trigger on anything. Priced with deluxe hard case. Call or email for price and availability.
