Flamenco guitar José Ramírez 1972

This flamenco guitar was built by the popular José Ramirez signature in 1972, 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 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. Besides, we can feel the extra comfort of having such a light guitar (hardly heavier than a kg.)

Its condition is very good, it only presents a slight crack on the lower part of the side. However, being on a tension-free spot, and close to the reinforcement of the guitar base, that crack does not require any additional wooden parts, with hot glue as the only element employed in the repair process. Besides, it has a small crack on the top, under the upper pick guard, perfectly repaired. All this information exposed shall be found in the images attached.
