Description

This is Wolfgang Jellinghaus' tribute to the 1912 Manuel Ramirez (built by Santos Hernandez) that Andres Segovia played for the first 25 years of his career, the original now housed in the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. All details of the original have been carefully reproduced with the exception of the materials used - for this "version", Wolfgang selected cedar for the soundboard and pau ferro for the back and sides. The guitar is lightly built, with explosive response, making it incredibly easy to play. It also has a the sleek, easy neck shape for the left hand. Overall a very impressive concert guitar, and a meticulously well-produced tribute to one of history's most iconic instruments.

Background
Wolfgang Jellinghaus was born in 1951 in Dortmund, Germany. His father, Walter Jellinghaus, was himself a guitar maker and naturally introduced the craft to Wolfgang at a young age. In 1978, Wolfgang opened a retail music shop called Musik Jellinghaus GmbH and in 1983, he became involved in manufacturing and so created Martinez Guitars, designing their first line of guitars. In 2003, production of Martinez Guitars was moved to China with Wolfgang's assistance. In 2013, he sold Musik Jellinghaus GmbH, and set up an independent workshop in China, building guitars under the name "Milestones of Music", a small boutique traditional workshop that specialized in making high-quality guitars in the style of such great historical makers as Lacote, Torres, Hauser and Ramirez, among others. Wolfgang has now begun a new line of instruments under his name.
