Manuel Contreras 1a Especial Cedar
Back and Sides South American Rosewood
Width at Nut 51mm
Scale Length 65cm
Since the recent untimely passing of Manuel Contreras II, these instruments are being constructed, as many were before, by Contreras's longstanding assistant, Jose Antonio Lagunar. They retain the special Contreras qualities.
This is powerful professional instrument with great playablity.
What can I say? The guitar has arrived and is everything I expected it to be. Really it is hard to imagine how these guitars can be improved on but no doubt they do. Maybe next year I'll go in for his double top, it must be awesome! Thanks again.
