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 is a great-sounding and easy-to-play example of an older concert flamenco from the golden era of Ramirez. It is lightweight and comfortable, with a dry and aggressive old-world flamenco sound. The top has 2 cracks, re-enforced internally with cleats. Refinshed top by GV Rubio. Machines have been replaced with Schallers. It's in fine structural and playing condition and looks great - these repairs have been taken into pricing consideration. An excellent players guitar for the performer looking for a great workhorse that has the classic Ramirez sound.
