Flamenco guitar José Ramírez 1965 I.M.

This flamenco guitar was built by the popular José Ramirez signature in 1965, 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 got a grey border, as usual in a first class guitar. The initials I.M. denote it has been made by master luthier Ignacio Manzano.

The sound coming out of this guitar is just spectacular. It combines volume and quality excellently. The bass are powerful and deep, and the trebles, crystal clear and with a great scope. On balance, a real flamenco sound with its own distinctive personality.

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.

The condition of this flamenco guitar is excellent and original. It only has a small fissure, located on a lower spot of the top, almost invisible to eyesight. In any case, it is perfectly repaired and backed up in the attached images.
