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. This guitar 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. Initials stamped inside are JG (Juan Garcia Rey - For a complete list of Ramirez luthiers from this era, click here). Condition is excellent - no cracks or repairs, only some superficial surface wear on the finish. This is a fantastic guitar for the player seeking a classic vintage Ramirez.
