❌SOLD❌ 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.

Lenny Breau's Ramirez 1a Flamenco Guitar, 1961

Here is an historic piece – one of Lenny Breau’s Ramirez 1a Flamenco Guitars, built during 1961 and used during many appearances with Lenny as seen in the attached clips. The first clip is from is a CBC documentary from 1968 with Lenny playing the guitar with its distinctive friction tuners, and the visible, protective tap plates (Golpeador). Note the technical deviation from ‘strictly traditional’ Flamenco style – the use of a thumbpick, very likely a Chet Atkins influence.
