Scott Barr. Scotland. Contreras C7.

Hello Adrian and Selina

Wanted to thank you for the valuable advice you gave my parents when choosing a guitar for my birthday and the fast delivery (two days)!

The Contreras C7 is everything I wanted it to be, it sounds wonderful and Adrian tells me it will sound even better in a years time (I can't even begin to imagine how that would be possible). I wanted a guitar that not only sounded great, but looked great as well and the Contreras certainly does both of these. Adrian was right, the Contreras does have depth in the middle and lower harmonies.

I am studying at the RSAMD in Glasgow and my teacher was very impressed with my new guitar, when I eventually got the case open that is. I was so looking forward to taking it to the academy, that I forgot the key to open my case. A mad panic set in, I was doing a performance class with Allan Neave that day. We eventually got the case open and I was really proud of the sound coming from my guitar, as I performed. I didn't feel quite so daft when Allan Neave told us a few stories about top guitarists playing at sell out concerts, one turned up with an empty guitar case, the other put his guitar down to sort his music and then sat on top of it!
Anyway my performance went really well, I learned a lot from Allan and I was really proud of my guitar. I would recommend it for any student of classical guitar, it has a lovely sound and great for performing as well as learning.
