This flamenco guitar was built by the popular José Ramirez signature in 1968, 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 piece of work is something worth listening to: powerful and deep basses, the trebles are sweet and smooth, with a sustained sound and unique projection, the harmonics that it produces are truly magic. It makes a very particular kind of sound, as it has got its own character and deeply flamenco.
The tension of this flameco guitar is medium, and the height of the strings in the saddle and fingerboard really balanced, which provides us with a high degree of comfort for both hands.
The conservation state is very good. Has some cracks on the top almost invisible to eyesight, and three more on the back, all perfectly repaired and documented in the attached images. The guitar still has the original varnish.
