tennant

When Scott Tennant came by to play some of the Cleveland Collection guitars late last year he more or less fell in love with the 1969 Ramirez that Segovia had owned and played from 1969 to 1980. When he told us he was about to record a CD of Segovia’s compositions we all had a Eureka moment and realized he had to record the CD using this guitar. The CD will be produced by the Guitar CoOp in Brazil (which is headed by our friend Marcelo Kayath) but we will record it here in Santa Monica.

Ramirez

Actually, the new 2016 Jose Ramirez guitars have just arrived at GSI – a batch of 1a and Elite models. We just haven’t had time to photograph them and upload them to the site yet. But we were all impressed by the new tuners and the new custom BAM cases and of course the sound and feel of a Ramirez 1a. Our friend Tavi Jinariu was in the shop and as he played one he immediately commented that there was really nothing like the feel and sound of a great Ramirez, and that the playability of the new guitars was better even than the great Ramirez guitars of the 60’s and 70’s. We’ll have them up on the site and ready to go soon!
