Description

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. The 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 in the great recordings made by Segovia and Parkening from this time. It features lush CSA rosewood for the back and sides – quite a treat for the eyes. The condition is great for its age, apart from some minor work to the binding and inlay at the foot (now invisible, done by GV Rubio) it has no damage or repairs - only some very modest playing wear in the finish. An excellent example of a fine Ramirez for either collector or concert player.
