2016 Manuel Contreras "N-3" CD/IN
|Back & Sides:
Made entirely by hand at the Manuel Contreras workshop
, the N Series guitars are as high as the range goes before reaching the 1a and Double Top models.
The N-3 falls in the middle of the N Series range, and this particular guitar is made with a cedar soundboard and Indian rosewood back and sides. Also features a 20th fret to accommodate repertoire needing a high c natural. The sound is classic Contreras - big, bold and full of wild Madrid character.
