Flamenco guitar José Ramírez 1968 nº3080

This flamenco guitar as 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.

This flamenco guitar belonged to Juan José Esteve Cano, great friend of maestro Paco de Lucia, and owner of a flamenco tablao in Valencia. In one of the images attached, we can see Juan José Esteve Cano, next to the maestro Paco with this guitar, a guitar which has been with him for all his life, which he was especially fond of. One more time, this instrument is part of a series of guitars specially made for the artists of that time. They were top-notch guitars, but delivered without a signature, thus allowing professionals to acquire them for a lower price, after promising not to sell them at a higher price.

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 completely original, without any kind of cracks or repairs whatsoever.
