The Ramirez Dynasty, founded by José Ramirez I, is building fine and high-quality guitars since 1882. In his Madrid-based workshop, José Ramirez I taught a huge number of talented, and now famous, luthiers such as Enrique Garcia, Julian Gomez Ramirez, Antonio Pascual Viudes, his brother Manuel Ramirez and eventually his son José Ramirez II. Following his father’s tradition, José Ramirez II was building guitars mostly on the “guitarra de tablao” model: a very light and traditional form of small bodied flamenco guitars.
This very light flamenco guitar was built in 1935 in Madrid by José Ramirez II. It has a spruce top and Spanish cypress back and sides. It is a very responsive small bodied instrument with a direct response and playful colours. The tuning pegs are very good, the guitar is easy to tune and light to handle. This is a very special guitar with a bright, silvery and voluminous tone. The guitar is in overall very good condition for its age. A hard-shell case is included.
