2017 Jose Ramirez "1aF 656-A" SP/CY
|Back & Sides:
This guitar was built in the famous Jose Ramirez
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 model is the top-of-the-line flamenco model which is suitable for both performance on a concert stage and for traditional flamenco playing with dancers and percussionists. It is a very lively instrument with excellent playability with a lovely neck and easy action, great volume and has an authentic Spanish sound with a lot of bite, making it one of our favorite choices for the serious flamenco guitarist. The tone is thick yet clear, and has that essential warm, mysterious and moody quality that made Ramirez famous.
A hardshell case is included with this guitar.
