Jose Ramirez - Manuel Ramirez 1912 model
Back and SidesBrazilian Rosewood
Width at nut 51mm
Scale length 65.5 cm
This "new" model is in fact an exact replica of the famous 1912 Manuel Ramirez guitar with which Segovia established his international career and played continuously for some twenty five years! The original instrument is now residing in the Metropolitan Museum in New York.
The materials are just the finest with beautiful Brazilian back and sides. The tone has a very fine sweet quality and its well focused sound renders excellent projection. Playability too, with the meticulously shaped neck and comfortable string height, is excellent.
This one is number four of a special limited edition of thirty and comes with a signed certificate by Amalia Ramirez. A really great instrument for both for a player and collector.
- NOTE: This instrument is in our Archives section and is not for sale.
Just to let you know I'm delighted. I've played it quite thoroughly now and it is, without doubt, superb value ..............thank you for answering my emails so straightforwardly and helpfully. Really, I couldn't be more pleased.
