Product Description

The Ramirez family has been building fine and high-quality guitars since 1882 already. Their instruments have been and are played by some of the greatest guitarists in the world, such as Julian Bream, Andres Segovia, Laurindo Almeida, Oscar Ghiglia, Jose Luis Gonzales, and many others. Ramirez is an important part of the history of guitar building. Jose Ramirez I (1858-1923) trained a large number of guitar builders in his workshop at the end of the nineteenth and beginning of the twentieth century. And José Ramirez III (1922-1995) was a pioneer in the use of cedarwood as top wood for guitars and built several guitars for Andres Segovia.

This instrument is really special as it features a red dot with a black 86 inscription on the label. This special feature highlights the major change made by José Ramirez III’s workshop in 1986 at the request of the Japanese market: to develop a line of concert guitars with a scale of 65 cm instead of over 66 cm. These instruments, more suitable for smaller hands, offer exceptional playing comfort while remaining true to the “Ramirez” sound. This guitar is in very good condition. Entirely original, it has only a small flare repaired under the bridge.

The charming sound is very refined, rich and delicate. It is a complete guitar with a very high level on every aspect expected from a concert guitar: quality of tone, sustain, sympathetic resonances, contrast and balance as well as power. This is a rare and outstanding instrument.
