Manuel Contreras II is the son of Manuel Contreras I (1926-1994). It was the elder Contreras who made the first José Ramirez guitar Andrés Segovia bought in 1960 when he worked for Jose Ramirez III. Contreras earned a reputation as one of the finest and most innovative luthiers in Spain, a tradition that his son continues.  The finish on the guitar show some light wear: light scuffs and a pencil lead size ding on the lower bout of the top, and small flaw in the lacquer on the back that can't be seen in the photographs, some small marks on the sides and headstock. The saddle has been replaced with a compensated saddle. The frets have been recently dressed by a professional luthier, so the guitar'saction is easy and buzz free. This guitar sells new for $12,500, making the asking price a considerable bargain.
