Ramirez 1a Long Scale Classical Guitar Cedar Top Brazilian, 1967

Ramirez 1a Long Scale Classical Guitar Cedar Top Brazilian, 1967

Here we have a Ramirez 1a Long Scale classical guitar built during 1967, during the ‘golden era’ of Jose Ramirez III’s leadership of the Ramirez workshop at Concepcion Jeronima No. 2 in Madrid, Spain. This well-used instrument features a long scale of 664mm or 26.14 inches, intended to provide increased volume and projection for the professional concert performer.  With Jose Ramirez III leading the workshop, this Ramirez 1a Long Scale has the initials CLL on the slipper foot. Its construction defines the tradition that countless other builders follow, with the slipper foot join integrating the sides and neck for maximum resonance and response.

❌SOLD❌ Lacote style 'La Romantica' Guitar by Milestones of Music, 2017

For the ‘La Romantica’ model, Jellinghaus begins with the work of Rene Francis Lacote, who built in Paris from 1785 to 1868. At the time, the guitar was becoming more and more popular, but the bracing designs limited the amount of volume it could produce – and consequently the size of the audience.

Ramirez 1a Flamenco Blanca Guitar, 1969

Ramirez 1a Flamenco Blanca Guitar, 1969

Ramirez 1a flamenco guitars are built in the traditional Spanish style at the ‘home’ workshop. The guitar centers on a ‘slipper foot’ neck to body joint, with the sides fitting into slots cut into the heel block. The body pairs a Spruce top with Cypress back and sides – a very light wood in terms of weight and colouring, also providing a lot of brightness to the tone.

❌SOLD❌ Ramirez Model 1a Classical Guitar Cedar Top Brazilian Rosewood, 1971

The Ramirez Model 1a is the benchmark for professional grade concert classical guitars. Available in full 650 and longer scale lengths, this is one the instruments that brought the style to prominence in the 1960s. Here we’re looking at a long scale – 664mm – Ramirez Model 1a built during 1971 at Concepcion Jeronima No. 2, the shop Ramirez occupied from 1882 to 1971. In the early 1960s, growing demand required that the real production move to a new location, on Calle del Gral. Margallo, and in 1971, the storefront was moved across the street to Concepcion Jeronima No. 2.
