Ramirez SPR Spruce Top Classical Guitar, 2012

Ramirez SPR Spruce Top Classical Guitar, 2012

The Ramirez SPR classical guitar continues the tradition of the Ramirez 1a Especial model. Conceived by the maestro-luthier Amalia Ramirez, the SP-R furthers the evolution to the ‘modern’ sound. In the model designation, the SP refers to ‘Semi Professional’ and the R for Revised – this model supersedes and improves the original Ramirez SP. Based on professional grade model designs, the top of the Ramirez SPR is built at the Ramirez shop and the guitar completed offsite. The Ramirez home shop is not a large place, and Madrid doesn’t allow spray finishing within the city limits, so offsite completion is necessary.

Gibson J-50 Slope Shoulder Dreadnought Guitar, 1953

Gibson J-50 Slope Shoulder Dreadnought Guitar, 1953

The Gibson J-50 first appeared alongside the J-45 in 1952 as a pair of slope or round-shouldered dreadnoughts, the J-50 in Natural and the J-45 Sunburst. These models replaced the J-35, built from 1936 to 1942. The two guitars are structurally very similar, but the natural-finish J-50 received multi-layer top binding and better visual grade Spruce tops as there was no tint to hide imperfections. For this reason, the J-50 carried a higher price.

Gibson Melody Maker Single Cutaway Sunburst, 1960

Gibson Melody Maker Single Cutaway Sunburst, 1960

Introduced in 1959 as a student model just below the Les Paul Junior, the Gibson Melody Maker wound up in the hands of a number of professional rock guitarists. The Melody Maker was built from 1959 to 1971, in single and double pickup (the Melody Maker D) versions, in full scale and short scale. The original single cutaway model seen here was built until late 1960, then replaced with a double cutaway version. In 1966, the body shape changed to the pointed-horn SG style. In 1971, the line was dropped in favour of the SG-100 and SG-200 models, which lasted one year.
