Lester DeVoe Flamenco Blanca Guitar, 2000

Lester DeVoe Flamenco Blanca Guitar, 2000

A Lester DeVoe flamenco guitar is an unusual instrument to come across. DeVoe is regarded as on of the world’s best flamenco constructors and is based in Nipomo, California.
DeVoe came to lutherie in a not unusual way. He was taking classical and flamenco guitar lessons, intending on a career as a musician, but could not find an instrument to match the quality of his teacher’s 1924 Santos Hernandez guitar.

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.

The Ramirez SP, now the Semi-Professional model, bridges the ‘Estudio’ and ‘Handcraft’ classical guitars and is intended for the accomplished student player about to move to professional status. Like other ‘Estudio’ models, the Semi-Professional is partly built in the city of Madrid at the Ramirez shop – it’s worth noting that Madrid prohibits spray finishing and so that type of finishing is done at shops outside the city limits.
