Orfeo Magazine #3 – Manuel Contreras & Marcelino Lopez


The ‘Guitarreria’ Manuel Contreras has just been featured in the latest issue of the French classical guitar magazine Orfeo, and it has a great rundown of the various innovations that first Manuel and later Pablo Contreras made in their guitar design, and of the various models. I say the Contreras ‘Guitarreria’ because since the untimely passing of Pablo Contreras in 2011 the shop has been continuing with the blessing of the Contreras family under the direction of Victoria Velasco, making guitars just as they had been made by Manuel and Pablo Contreras.

In addition to the articles on Contreras this issue of Orfeo has an interview with Pepe Romero about Contreras, a great interview with Marcelino Lopez Nieto with a spread of some amazing instruments from his collection and quite a bit more.
