In a previous ‘Coming Soon’ post about our new guitar from Italian luthier Lorenzo Frignani I had posted some photos of the guitar in progress and of another guitar Frignani had made. Well here are photos of the actual guitar, a recreation of a well-played 1910 Manuel Ramirez guitar (hence the label), that is on its way to GSI. Continue reading to see the photo gallery.

    Huh, why does the label say “Manuel Ramirez, Madrid?”

    I’m going to update the post now – this guitar is a recreation of a Manuel Ramirez guitar. Thanks for pointing that out.

      Ah, that makes sense. If I’d been reading more carefully I probably would have got that. I’m still a little confused though. The blog mentions that Thomas Norwood is about to send you a 1910 Ramirez copy. Are you going to have two 1910 Ramirez copies by two different luthiers at the same time?

    I asked David Collett to make sure and here’s what he said:

    Yes. Different guitars from 1910 but by sheer coincidence, yes.

    One is a “new” looking guitar, the other will be beat up and old looking, antique look. One is built in France by an American ex-pat, and the other in Italy by an Italian. We just sold a Jose Ramirez “1912 Manuel Ramirez” as well: http://guitarsalon.com/p3967-jose-ramirez-1912-manuel-ramirez-spcsar.html.
