Manuel Contreras II has built a masterpiece in this Double Top (Doble Tapa) guitar. The 'double top' in this case actually refers to a layer of Cedar added to the back of the guitar which warms the reflections inside the body creating a truly magical voice. The notes on this Contreras are three dimensional each carrying weight and projection clearly. The Cocobolo Rosewood adds it's rich, Brazilian-like character, while the Cedar top insure the dark, Spanish sound. We fell in love with this one immediately.

2008 Contreras II, Manuel Doble Tapa/Double Top - Classical guitar Classical Guitar Player Reviews

Player Reviews:

"Exquisite. Cocobolo Rosewood and Cedar combine here with amazing result. The extra layer of Cedar forming the 'Double Top' really modifies the character and insure a round and full attack of every note. This is also a strong guitar with wonderful power and clarity. Absolutely everything the serious player would demand." - Paul Heumiller
