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 including a gorgeous set of CSA rosewood and a well-aged, deep amber-hued spruce top. Condition is excellent with no cracks or repairs, only some minor wear in the finish. Actually considering that the top is French polished, it's in quite amazing condition! This is a great classic Madrid concert guitar at a very reasonable price.
