José Ramirez flamenco guitar from 1998 – very nice guitar from the Ramirez shop. A very good modern flamenco guitar. Well made and very good sounding!
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. They have 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 and volume; and has an authentic Spanish sound with a lot of bite. It has a very voluminous sound and offers besides the loud tone an enormous warmth. The basses are absolutely fantastic and come with great power. 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 spruce and back and sides of cypress. The scale length is 655 mm and the nut width 52 mm.
It is in very good condition and comes with the original case.
