Ramirez FL1A Flamenco Blanca Spruce, 2010

Ramirez FL1A Flamenco Blanca Spruce, 2010

The now- discontinued Ramirez Fl1A Flamenco guitar is one of the standards for concert quality Flamenco instruments. It is traditionally constructed with a European spruce top, cypress back and sides and Spanish Cedar neck.  Ebony is used for the fingerboard and Indian Rosewood for the bridge, and the nut and saddle are bone.   The model name, FL1A, expands to ‘Flamenco’, Grade 1, and the A refers to the material for the top – Abeto, meaning ‘Fir’ but specifically Spruce as distinct from the Red Cedar pioneered by Jose Ramirez III.

❌SOLD❌ La Esperanza Classe 1000 Concert Classical Guitar, 1979

Here we have a nicely kept La Esperanza Classe 1000 classical guitar built during 1979 in the shop of Masaru Matano or his successors in Kurume, Japan. Matano’s shop built the La Esperanza Classe 1000 and lower priced Classe 600 for sale for the company name “Ongaku Geijutsusha Co” and these models were based on Ramirez instruments. The Classe 1000 features a Red Cedar top and double layer Rosewood sides and back, which is not quite the same as laminated. Here, the two layers are of Brazilian Rosewood and are used to reduce overtones and ‘wolf’ tones when the guitar is played loudly.

Ramirez FL2 Flamenco Blanca Guitar

Ramirez FL2 Flamenco Blanca Guitar

The Ramirez FL2 Flamenco Blanca is a traditional Flamenco Blanca model, built to provide brilliant, percussive and loud rhythms at brisk tempos. This model, and its new replacement the Estudio Flamenco “Serranito” are the only ‘Student’ Flamenco guitars offered by Ramirez. Flamenco is now very professional and formalized, but is at its roots a folk style combining highly expressive, rhythmic percussion and melody using voice, dance, hand claps, finger snaps and guitars.
