Description

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. It is stamped internally with the builder's initials, "AM" (Antonio Martinez), the same maker who built Ramirez guitars for Segovia and Parkening. In fact it was made the same year by the same maker as Andres Segovia's beloved " AM" Ramirez (For a complete list of Ramirez luthiers from this era, click here). It is very easy to play, with a lovely neck and easy action, despite the way many of the guitars from this period were set up. The tone is thick yet clear, and has that essential warm, mysterious and moody quality that made Ramirez famous. It features first rate materials and high quality workmanship. The top has been refinished, likely done to remove scratches in the original finish, otherwise condition is excellent with no cracks or repairs. For the serious player or collector seeking out an instrument from the golden age of Ramirez built by one their star makers.
