1979 Manuel Contreras Estudio C3 Classical guitar. Made in Spain.
Lovely vintage classical guitar made in Madrid. The Estudio guitars are probably made by a 'student' or 'apprentice' of Contreras under his supervision or contracted out to another builder in Barcelona under the stewardship of Contreras. Bear in mind the Contreras built guitars command £1000s.
The modern C3 guitar is well over £2000. There are not too many 70s Contreras guitars about.
Features a solid Cedar top and laminated Indian Rosewood back and solid Rosewood sides with side braces , Ebony fretboard and Rosewood headstock fascia.
Used condition with some scuffs and scrapes, marks and small indents in places , mostly detailled in the pictures (further pics below).
There is a small patch repair on the back of the neck, either from the maker or done at a later date but its smooth to the touch and doesn't affect playability.
It has a reasonable classical action, not high or too low.
Comes with Hiscox and will be well packaged and boxed for shipping.
