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.

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. It features beautiful materials including some lovely Indian rosewood back and sides with beautiful grain patterning. It's in great condition for its age - apart from the usual cosmetic wear in the finish, it does have some repairs to the soundboard to repair one 4 inch crack below the rosette on treble side and two cracks on either side of the fingerboard, done conservatively and leaving the original finish intact, and this has been taken into pricing consideration. Overall a great sounding example of a fine Ramirez for either collector or concert player.

For more information on Ramirez, be sure to read The Ramirez Family: Masters of the Guitar, or for information on the Ramirez family members, from Amalia Ramirez back to Jose I and for some interesting fact-checking on myths and facts about this legendary workshop.
