Previously owned by Marcin Dylla

This model was the first-prize winner of the Joaquin Rodrigo competition in October of 2000 and is among Contreras' finest instruments. 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 Spruce 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.
