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.
It 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.
Condition is astounding for its age – there is only light wear of use and age. The action is low and it plays and sounds incredible.
I got this one from the first owner who bought it new at the time. It is in a very good condition with just some playwear.
It has a cedar top and brazilian rosewood back and sides. The nut width is 54 mm and it has a 664 mm scale.
