Description

This spruce guitar reflects many of the features of the cedar model and retains the warmth of the Contreras character. It has a firmer feel and sound as you start to play and a smooth 'creamy' voice.

The initial tightness, characteristic of a spruce top, brings more clarity and control to her voice and even over only a half hour of playing, I could hear the sound developing and opening out as the guitar warmed up.

The control and evenness of the sound is perfect for melodies which I could easily phrase across the treble stings and also for contrapuntal voicing when separation is required.

I really enjoyed playing Vincent Lindsey Clarkes' '5 Pictures of Sark' on this guitar. She responded beautifully to the many contrapuntal lines and the smooth creamy sound made light work of the full, dissonant harmonies and long melodies, really bringing out the subtleties of the music.
