Savino Music ONLY sells Manuel Contreras guitars in Central and South America.

Perhaps best shown by its ultra-defined basses, this Contreras model is exemplary of the brand’s characteristic balance and intonation. Rich harmonics, sculpted tone, and longevity of life makes the C1 a perfect choice for professionals and aficionados alike.

This Manuel Contreras C1 Spruce is beautiful from beginning to end. We keep bringing it to the store because Contreras is constantly making this nice instrument even better and better. It feels welcoming and inviting. Music is inside it! The rosette is like a royal garden, full of color and textures. Its sound is pure finesse and sophistication. So many qualities to this instrument that it feels like a privilege to play it every time.

The tone is a blend of the traditional and the modern classical guitar. Amazing intonation, amazing articulation and long harmonics. It has a good sustain and a very good response.

When we received the first Contreras C1 Spruce several years ago, we played uptempo music. It just felt like it. We were impressed at how accurate the guitar was. Then we went into more mellow tunes and the contrast was quite enjoyable. This instrument can impress you at first and in time! The top will open and grow as it is played. Gorgeous instrument.

We recommend the Manuel Contreras C1 to any professional guitarist, conservatory musician, or aficionado.
