Here we have a 1995 Contreras II 1 Especial - India in European Spruce and East Indian Rosewood. This is a fine representation of the skill the Contreras family wields as guitar builders: everything from the tone, fit, and finish is wonderfully executed on this classical. The tone is the true star here, exactly as a great classical should sound, pure and warm, with great balance from the bass to treble. The East Indian Rosewood back and sides are finished with a perfectly smooth gloss and the guitar's light weight sits comfortably in your lap. The elegant Rosewood bindings and Brazilian Rosewood headstock plate are definite eye candy, but they pale in comparison to the dark, moody lines of the East Indian Rosewood back and sides. This Contreras is at once a guitar to play for hours, and then to ogle when you're not.

1995 Contreras II, Manuel 1 Especial - India - Nylon Classical Guitar Player Reviews

Player Reviews:

"As with any Contreras classical, you are dealing with the cream of the crop. The tight-grained European Spruce top is nice and warm, while the East Indian Rosewood back provides enough projection to fill a room. The overall construction is lightweight, yet robust. You'll get lost in the warmth and articulation across the lower and upper registers." - Paul Heumiller
