Description

There are few things we love more around the DG shop than a well balanced Classical guitar, this 1984 Contreras Sr. Concert is the definition of balance, and we are head over heels for it. This Concert model is built from Brazilian Rosewood and Spruce and has a voice that will melt butter, it is balanced perfectly from bass to treble. Without question the 'G' string is one of the best sounding we have heard in the shop, usually the G can be thunky or underwhelming, not so here on this Contreras. Time has been kind to this instrument, imparting it with all of the mature voice and tone, but with few of the battle wounds that usually come with it. A fantastic guitar!

As stated above, this Contreras is sublimely balanced, the trebles stand up to the bass and the mids even them both out. It is perfect.
