|Comments||Today we have a 2001 Jose Ramirez Elite 1a Traditional. The 1a Traditional model is the top of the range for Ramirez guitars, and the Elite version uses the highest quality materials available.
This model features a lovely Brazilian rosewood back and sides paired with a red cedar top. It’s very warm, open and responsive.
The instrument is in good shape with a couple of small marks that do not affect playability or structural integrity.
