Simon Mayo. Wales. Contreras Double Top Premium

Hi Adrian

I was a little nervous buying such an expensive guitar as the Contreras Double Top Premium without having seen, heard or played her. However I put my trust in Adrian’s description of her appearance ,sound and playability. When I received my Contreras I was bowled over by the shear brilliance of the workmanship and artistic and musical flair that must have gone into her making. She has a strong powerful sound but delicate passages still sparkle with intensity. Just picking up a guitar like this and beginning to play her lifts one’s standard of play a couple of levels. I find it much easier to play with musical expression than on my old guitar (itself a quality concert guitar) and the improvement has even been commented on by other members of the family who normally pay no attention to my playing all day.

Best Wishes
