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 canadian cedar, 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 initials J.G. denote it has been made by master luthier Juan Garcia Rey.
Its quality sound is really amazing, this is undoubtedly one of the finest guitars we have ever seen from the signature, a perfect balance between basses and trebles and an incredibly flamenco timbre that sublimely combines power and volume with quality and perfect pitch with that particular “dry” and “hollow” sound, typical in the best flamenco guitars.
This guitar has got medium tension, and a reduced height of strings in the saddle and fingerboard, providing the guitarist with a high degree of comfort for both hands, as well as an easy performance.
The condition of this flamenco guitar is excellent, without any cracks or repairs of any kind. The original pegbox was replaced with a mechanical one, just like the previous owner wanted.
