Description

The tone of this guitar has that classic, identifiable Ramirez sound from this era - a rich, thick and yet clear voice throughout, and has that essential warm, mysterious and moody quality that made Ramirez famous. Stamped initials internally are MT (Mariano Tezanos), who along with AM (Antonio Martinez) was the most sought-after of the Ramirez makers (For a complete list of Ramirez luthiers from this era, click here), particularly due the fondness Segovia had for his 1968 MT, arguably his favorite Ramirez. There are three small, hairline cracks in the top that were expertly repaired with small cleats and cloth patch - both in areas not affected by sound (near the edge of the top where the bouts join and under the fingerboard). Otherwise it is a striking and bold example of a top Ramirez from their golden era.
