This is Wolfgang Jellinghaus' tribute to Jose Ramirez III, one of the most innovative luthiers of the 20th century - as we've mentioned in the past, these Ramirez III guitars were played by guitarists of all genres - from Sting to Segovia, Chet Atkins to Sabicas, Lee Ritenour to Christopher Parkening and countless others. Jose III was the first to popularize the use of cedar for soundboards in the mid-1960s and made many innovations to the body of the guitar, including the practice of lining the sides internally with cypress. Wolfgang has copied these details as well as the 6-bar assymetrical fan system (with diagonal "treble-stiffener" bar) to re-create that haunting, very deep mysterious "Spanish" sound that have given these guitars their timeless appeal to guitarists of all stripes for over half a century. As with all of Wolfgang's guitars, it is incredibly easy to play thanks to the sleek, easy neck shape and easy action for the left hand. Overall a very impressive concert guitar, and a meticulously well-produced tribute to one of history's most iconic makers.
