2010 Manuel Contreras ll “1a Especial”

Top: Cedar
Back and sides: Rosewood
Scale: 650mm
Origin: Spain
Price: $8,500
Built the last year that Manuel Contreras was alive this cedar 1a Especial is a superb example of what the Contreras shop was known for, rich, expressive Spanish tone with ample volume. This guitar is in excellent condition, with only light playing wear noted mainly in a small area on the top below the the treble side of the fret board, similar to the 2012 Spruce Contreras I just posted, both have the same owner so this playing wear area is the same on both guitars, but is not a significant issue at all.

She has a Cibeles case and a 20th half fret to!
