Description: Acoustic Guitar - FOR SALE RARE SIGNED 1970 MANUEL CONTRERAS FLAMENCO GUITAR

FOR SALE RARE SIGNED 1970 MANUEL CONTRERAS FLAMENCO GUITAR

A rare gem for a player or collector. I am the original owner of this guitar, which I bought directly from Manuel Contreras in 1970. Spruce top cypress back and sides ebony fingerboard rosewood headstock veneer machine tuners clear golpeadores 650/52 signed label. This guitar has never been repaired, refinished, or modified, and remains in its original condition, and in its original case. I performed for twenty-five years exclusively on this guitar, Mario Escudero and Sabicas have played it, and both had very high praise for its voice. I have now settled down to teaching flamenco and classical guitar, and I would like to find a good home for this beautiful instrument, made by one of the greatest luthiers of the twentieth century. Its voice has matured over forty years, and now has a sound that no new guitar can ever have.

I am offering it for sale for $6950, and will negotiate with a serious buyer. Interested parties are invited to see and play this guitar, by appointment, and/or to bring an expert to examine it, or a guitarist to play and assess it. The guitar can be seen in Westchester County, New York, thirty minutes north of Manhattan. Email to: actor at att.net to receive photos of the guitar by email if I am unable to post photos.
