Description

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.

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.
