1972 Ramirez Flamenco 1a Guitar SOLD


Comments Ramirez guitars are special to play; so much of the history of guitar music is interwoven with the history of the Ramirez guitar shop.This is a 1972 Ramirez Flamenco 1a Guitar in very nice condition. Featuring traditional construction with friction tuners, cedar top, cypress back and sides, Spanish cedar neck and Spanish construction, this guitar is loud and brilliant yet not harsh.Players of traditional instruments like this one might be tempted to quietly upgrade the friction tuners to PegHeds. These are intended to add geared stability and convenience to tuning, while maintaining the traditional appearance, with minimal changes to the instrument. Read about PegHeds here
