❌ SOLD ❌ 1972 Ramirez 1a Tradicional Brazilian Classical Guitar, 1972


Instrument Categories: , ,

When people talk about professional grade concert classical guitars, this guitar – the Ramirez 1a, also known as the Segovia or now Tradicional model – is what they mean. This design was developed in the early 1960’s by Jose Ramirez III to satisfy his most demanding and highly capable customers, including Andres Segovia.

This Ramírez 1a was built during 1972, after Jose III had moved his workshop to 5 Concepción Jerónima in Madrid to deal with increasing demand. It is in very good condition, with a 664mm scale length and 52mm nut width. It has a red cedar top with Brazilian Rosewood back, sides, headplate and bridge with Cypress for the neck and an ebony fingerboard. This guitar plays well – typical of the period, the fingerboard was shaved thin as the bass side enters the body, and this gives a lot of string clearance for the bass strings. The action is currently set to 6/64ths inch on the high E, 8/64ths on the middle strings, and rising to 10/64ths on the low E. A black hardshell case is included.
