This guitar was built in the famous Jose Ramirez III
workshop, which for over half a century has produced instruments performed on by countless professionals from Sting to Segovia, Chet Atkins to Sabicas and Lee Ritenour to Christopher Parkening. The tone is thick yet clear, and has that essential warm, mysterious and moody quality that made Ramirez famous. Condition is excellent - other than a recent fret-job by GV Rubio, it has no damage or repairs. It has huge power - the volume on this particular guitar is impressive even by the standards of Ramirez or Rodriguez from this period. Perfect guitar for the concert artist looking for that Ramirez sound and power.
