2012 Manuel Contreras 10th Anniversario
Back and sides: Rosewood
This Contreras is the 10th anniversario model ’serie premium’ using their best woods. Bracing I would refer to as a lattice design. There is a single repaired crack, repaired by Richard Brune, from the bridge to the edge of the lower bout on the top, otherwise in fine condition with a few marks, most notably some wear below the fretboard on the top, treble side.
The guitar has a powerful modern Spanish sound, with Spruce clarity, and projects well due to the design.
Has a 20th half fret and comes with a nice Visesnut case too!
