José Ramirez flamenco guitar from 1965 – the crème de la crème from Ramirez’ golden era!
There is not much to say about the name Ramirez … this family of luthiers has formed the history of guitar making like no one else.
For more than 100 years they have been producing world-class guitars.
This guitar comes from the so-called golden age of Ramirez. In the 60’s, when Jose Ramirez III revolutionized the body shape and inner construction of the guitar, these wonderful instruments were built.
It has the great flamenco sound known from the old recordings of the great master Sabicas.
The guitar has a very voluminous sound and offers besides the loud tone an enormous warmth. The basses are absolutely fantastic and come with a pleasant humming. The trebles are clear and distinguished. The guitar unfolds the most beautiful timbres in every single tone and inspires in all areas.
It plays very easy, with a low action, a straight neck and a perfect setting.
The top is made of cedar and back and sides of cypress. The scale length is 664 mm and the nut width 54 mm.
The tuning machine heads are high-end machine heads from Wittner. These Wittner fine tuning machine heads are among the best you can get. They have the vintage look, but work precisely and are easy to use.
If the guitar could speak, it would certainly be able to tell about the many evenings in the tablaos and on the stages of Spain. This guitar was definitely played a lot.
It is therefore in a rough condition with many repairs, traces of playing and use etc.
Again and again it was repaired and played on, because it simply has the magical sound and one could not do without it.
It is therefore suitable for someone who has no weak nerves and is looking for a guitar with character and scars.
All repairs are stable and the guitar is ready for use. It comes with a matching case.
