1971 Manuel Contreras SP/CY
|Back & Sides:
This is a fantastic flamenco guitar built by Manuel Contreras
. Although more known for his classical guitars, Contreras made some magnificent flamenco guitars as well, and this one is no exception. Being very lightweight and lively, this guitar is great fun to play, and the sound is pure flamenco. It is focused and snappy with immediate response, although it is still quite expressive. The action and setup are comfortable and fast, perfect for flamenco. As is typical of Contreras, the quality of materials is first-class. The condition is excellent for its age - there is only one repair on the side, near the waist of the under (treble) side. A great concert-level flamenco at a very affordable price.
