Ramirez FL1A Flamenco Blanca Spruce, 2010

Brand:

Instrument Categories: ,

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.

This Ramirez FL1A guitar was built at the Ramirez shop in Calle de la Paz, Madrid during 2010. It is in very good condition and has been well maintained.

As a traditional, professional grade Flamenco guitar, this instrument has a scale length of 650mm and the nut width approaching 52mm. Golpeador, tap plates, are installed to the top and there is light finger wear to the plates – not to the top!    As stock, this guitar has a standard 6-hole tie block.   A common ‘upgrade’ is to add an extra set of holes to the tie block, which allows easier and more secure ties and improved down bearing on the saddle.   That down bearing can be important as Flamenco models are often set up with a very low saddle and action height, reducing  pressure on the saddle and with it, slightly reducing note-to-note-clarity and sustain. 

The Ramirez FL2 was the next model up, and it has also been discontinued.   The FL line has been replaced with the Flamenco Studio

The original black hard-shell case is included.
