Description

Cream of the crop, an even mixture of sweetness and power—the Contreras 10th Anniversary model is a lifetime guitar. How could it be anything else? This piece of functional art is part of the Contreras II Premium Series, with their finest woods and appointments on display, and their patent double back design. Gorgeous-figured Brazilian Rosewood over Spruce; an intricate mosaic rosette pairs with mosaic tiled top trim and herringbone at the headplate; French Polished top for maximum resonance and Lacquer body for added protection. The voice is characterized by an even balance across the registers, with a touch extra pop in the top end, and we love the smooth sustain. There’s plenty of power under the hood, made possible by their doubled back design that allows the backplate to resonate more freely—adding volume and projection as well as sheer strength. This particular 10th Anniversary is from 2004 and has opened up handsomely between then and now. Snag this beauty before it’s gone!
