Montalvo guitars are a locally owned line of quality flamenco and classical guitars. Since 1991, Berkeley Musical Instrument Exchange has been designing these instruments in partnership with craftsmen in Michoacan, Mexico.

Both classical and flamenco guitars are modeled after master builders’ designs.
Master Models available include: Bouchet, Friedrich, Hernandez y Aguado, Ignacio Fleta, Raya Pardo, Romanillos, Torres, Ramirez, and Hauser.
