About This Listing

Manuel Contreras II 10th Anniversary "(1998)This model is among Contreras' finest instruments - it was the first-prize winner of the Joaquin Rodrigo competition in October of 2000.

This particular guitar is his "premium series" version of the instrument, which indicates top selection of materials and workmanship. The materials used are exquisite, featuring his best well-aged Brazilian rosewood and very dark, elegant cedar for the soundboard. Workmanship is to the highest standards - this can be instantly detected even with a quick glance at the detailing, particularly in the purfling and rosette. In the innovative Contreras spirit, this model is uniquely constructed with an inner-sounding back support, which allows the back to resonate freely - eliminating much of the normal dampening caused from contact with the players' body.

The sound is penetrating and has exceptional sustain. It has huge projection and can fill any sized concert hall.

A true "concert-grand" of an instrument.


Its cosmetic condition is as shown in the photos. Slight scratches that only affected the varnish on the side and in no way altered the sound of the guitar.
The strings are not new, but they are in good condition to play. 

The action is good, however it depends on the technique of each guitar player and easily our luthier can lower more. The angle of the strings on the top is still very nice, which allows a lower action without sacrificing the vibration on the top.

This guitar had only one owner and was always played at home.

NOTE I: more detail photos can be sent upon request. And of course, the guitar can be played in our shop in Pombal, Portugal.

NOTE II: The shipment of this instrument outside Europe is considered and the person interested in buying it should send us a message to let us know the best price and the carrier responsible for the shipment.

NOTE III: We recommend that this instrument is shipped with transport insurance guaranteed by the buyer. We can request this insurance from the shipping company, but the cost is made by the buyer.
