Jose Antonio was the main luthier for 30 years in the house of Contreras guitars until Pablo Contreras passed away, thats when he took charge of the company as the one and only luthier left for 4 years…
In 2015 he decided to built the guitars under his own label and fly with his own wings
This is a incredible guitar with lots of presence, power and projection, just like the many Contreras guitars I have sold & played along the years…
The lush warm Spanish tone is present, with great balance, separation & sustain…
A must try for anyone looking for a high end Spanish concert classical guitar
A great guitar for a player or collector who wants an instrument built in the direct tradition of Daniel Friederich, from whom Lesueur learned guitar making 45 years ago.
As Lesueur tells it, both he and Friederich knew each other as cabinet makers in Paris before either one started making guitars. Friederich began first and acquired skills and knowledge that put him at the forefront of world luthiers.
At the age of 39 Lesueur decided to follow his friend and became his apprentice and in 1978 he made his first concert instrument.
During his subsequent career he won all the national and international guitar making competitions and attracted the attention of many top virtuosos such as Toninho Ramos, Celco Machado, Mitsutoshi Tanaka and Alvaro Pieri.
