Comments:

This beautiful and classic Jose Ramirez 1A has typical play wear in and around the rosette and one string ding behind the treble E string.  Setup, play, sound, etc. all excellent.  4 cracks have been cleated, glued and stabilized on the back.  See photos.  I pressed and pushed finding all stable, no movement.

She is always mindful of the great Segovia, with that fat sound.  She’s a big girl at 666mm and 54mm nut (my perfect guitar).  She plays seemingly easier than you might believe.  Definitely have to have the hands for this guitar.  She sings, bellows, and rings.  Really beautiful example of the old Ramirez workshop.  This guitar was built by AS who is identified as Arturo Sanzano Moreno from the great Ramirez house.  Very good builder, obviously.  The guitar is very clear, and very loud!  She really is the epitome of the Ramirez sound from the late 1960’s to early 1970’s.

Listening with high quality headphones or audio equipment is highly recommended including EQ manipulation, if possible. We record everything flat with just a touch of Reverb to relieve dryness. My goal is to record the guitar as realistically as is possible. I speak in the recordings, my thoughts about the guitar (and possibly other things?).  My speaking also serves to give you my first impressions and to also give you a balance of the engineering (or lack thereof) versus the sound of the guitar.  I simply do not have time to engineer much of anything.  Thanks. Rich

MP3 Audio – 190606-1971 Ramirez 1A #4907 Cedar CSA – more easily played than you might believe, I love the sound of this guitar, warm and lush, with that classical Ramirez character from back in the 1960’s-70’s.

My Solo Book of sheet music is available here if you’re interested.
