1972 Ramirez 1A Cedar CSA 5786 Stamp 19 by Julian Moraga Rodriques
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. I recently measured the guitar, seeing the old Ramirez style setup, high and difficult, did some set up work, lowered the bridge slot, cut new nut and saddle, and now, it is perfection.
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 Luthier #19 who is identified as Julian Moraga Rodriques from the great Ramirez house.
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 – 180513-ramirez-1972-5786 – superbly setup, with a voice to die for in an older Ramirez. Great guitar, very romantic, very evocative.
