Manuel Contreras 1 Doblo Tapa 25th Anniversario 1994

This is a Manuel Contreras 1, 25th anniversary, signed, stamped and made by Manuel Contreras 1 himself. This is a very rare guitar of which he made only a handful. This guitar is typically a Contreras 1, innovative and pushing the limits and enhancing the tone with great skills using logical innovations. The guitar is made with double brazilian rosewood back and sides (cites included) of the highest quality, topped with the finest Canadian cedar, with Exterior Back Support, lap- and arm-rest that were designed to avoid the body to dampen the tone, and optimize power, volume and projection.

Beautiful detailing, with marquetry rosette, herringbone style matchin- purfling, Brazilian rosewood bridge and Peghead overlay, Fustero tuners. This is one of a limited edition of the 25th Anniversario guitars designed by Manuel Contreras ibn his never lasting attempt to improve, tone volume and projection. 

This amazing sounding instrument - be sure to check out Edu Postma playing this guitar.

The condition is excellent with all original Shellac and no repairs. Very clean for a 22 year old guitar with angelhair wear only. Comes with the original case.
