This flamenco guitar was built by the popular José Ramirez signature in 1962, one of the most prolific periods of the firm, which flocked to his shop guitarists worldwide both classical and flamenco, Paco de Lucia, Manolo Sanlucar, Narciso Yepes, Serranito… among many others.

The wood used for the top is German spruce, and spanish Cypress for back and sides. The top has a very accentuated grain, completely straight and uniform. The back and sides are made of cypress wood, with an outstanding quality and beauty. The label of this guitar has its border in gold, corresponding to the guitars built by training officers about to get their master’s approval, José Ramírez, to be qualified as 1st Officer. The materials used were perfectly cured, but not correspond to selected first by a knot or stain. The initials M.M. denote it has been made by master luthier Miguel Malo.

The sound coming out of this guitar is just spectacular. It combines volume and quality excellently. The bass stops are powerful and deep, and the trebles, crystal clear and with great scope. A sound with its own personality, capable of captivating us since the very first chord.

The tension of this flamenco guitar is medium, so it can be played very easily, and safely. Additionally, the height of strings in the saddle and fingerboard is low, thereby ensuring an extraordinary level of comfort.

Its condition is good. Neverhteless, it does present a graft on the top, and another one on the back, as well as some sideways cracks on it, all of which are perfectly repaired and documented in the pictures attached. This is a great chance to purchase a guitar of the best time of one of the most best-regarded flamenco guitar firms, and for quite a reasonable price.
