Description

Spruce soundboard, cypress back and sides, cedar neck, Brazilian rosewood bridge, Indian rosewood head facing. Note: The 'Tipo C' model was a regular concert guitar made by Manuel Reyes, however, apparently using less choice materials (conversation with Manuel Reyes August 2014).. Viewing is recommended: the sound, workmanship and condition are exceptional.. Sold with a pre-CITES licence. A CITES licence can also be obtained for buyers outside the EU. Please see a member of Brompton's staff for further information.
