Michael Woloschuk. Canada. Contreras C5 Cedar.

Hi Sandra.

I'm writing today to let you know that it's now been two months since I received the Contreras C5 from Stafford Guitar, and that I am absolutely pleased with the guitar. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to play it until mid-January because I sprained my hand over the holidays. But since then have been playing the Contreras every day and I'm absolutely blown away by the quality of the sound. It's hard to believe that the C5 is one of Contreras' cheaper student models. I've brought it to lessons and my teacher is equally impressed with it. I know he's loathe to admit it, but my Contreras Estudio sounds fuller, richer, and more alive than his Darryl Perry concert guitar. I know I should also be thanking the Contreras shop for producing such a guitar, but I also must thank Stafford Guitar for having the knowledge and foresight to stock such fine instruments. I just have one question: can you tell me the brand and tension of the strings that were on the Contreras when it was shipped to me? They sound beautiful and I'd like to keep using them. I also wanted to tell you how much I appreciate the BAM case, which makes travelling around the city with the guitar so much easier. And thank you once again for allowing me to purchase the guitar on instalments.

Best wishes,

Michael Woloschuk.
