This is a fantastic instrument built in the world-famous Manuel Contreras workshop. Being loud and lively, this guitar is great fun to play, and the sound is characteristic of the Madrid style. It is focused, rich and quite expressive. The action and setup are comfortable, and the quality of materials is first-class. Apart from one well-repaired crack at the side of the fingerboard, the guitar is in great shape with just some mild wear in the finish. This is a great classic Madrid concert guitar at a very reasonable price.
