This guitar is a slightly modified version of a Manuel Ramirez (the original, from 1910 is owned by Lorenzo Frignani). The bracing is a 7+2 symmetrical system copied from the original guitar. Her familiarity with the original instrument has proven advantageous since she has done a great job of capturing the spirit of the Manuel Ramirez - a very natural, earthy quality of sound. But she also brings to the guitar great clarity/separation of voices and a surprising amount of volume. This is a very versatile instrument which would be suitable for any style of music, for solo playing, or in ensemble.
