Jose Ramirez III (AM), Spain
1A Model
Pre-Owned 1964
Overview: This magnificent, one owner concert guitar was constructed by Antonio Martinez as borne out by the initials, "A.M.," stamped prominently on the guitar's internal heel block. Over the years Antonio Martinez has been acclaimed for building some of the finest guitars out of the Jose Ramirez III shop - most notably some of the iconic instruments performed and recorded upon by Andres Segovia and Christopher Parkening.

The sound of this guitar is warm, round, and balanced. The basses are dark, solid, and deep; the trebles powerful, colorful, and clear. Separation between voices is excellent. Moreover, this is a particularly comfortable Ramirez 1A to play: The action of the low e string at the 12th fret is 3.5mm; the action of the high E string at the 12th fret is 2.5mm.

The condition of this guitar is excellent and original.

Materials: European spruce soundboard, beautiful dark csa sides and back, ebony fingerboard, original Ramirez synthetic finish, Fustero tuning machine heads, 664mm string length, original Ramirez hardshell case.
