This flamenco guitar was built by the popular José Ramirez signature in 1974, 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. This guitar was made by master luthier Félix Manzanero.
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 label of this guitar has got a grey border, as usual in a first class guitar.
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, and the height of strings in saddle and fingerboard is reduced. The height on the fret 12 is 2.0 millimeters, which allows our left hand to do its job very easily and fluently.
The condition of this flamenco guitar is excellent and completely original, without any cracks or repairs whatsoever. It only has superficial marks on the varnish surface and wear typical of a used guitar but well preserved. It also has a superficial fissure on the top, although it does not pierce the wood at any point of it. As a result, it does not need any repair whatsoever.
