Fender Custom Shop USA Select Classic Koa Auditorium Acoustic Guitar
Ladies and gentlemen...For your consideration! A very rare, 1957 Ramirez, Instrumentos Para Rondalla ( (translated :Street Musician or Gypsy Minstrel). This is a rare Blue Label Ramirez studio model, with the Concepcion Jeronima No.2 address on it. Most all of the Blue label Ramirez guitars after 1957 had the Calle de La Paz No.8 on them. This Guitar was made around the time when Jose Ramirez III was just ending his work as a journeyman guitar maker, to take over the administrative and guitar development of the company, after his brother Alfredo died. I am not sure as to the woods used in its construction, however, it is a beautiful guitar, with that distinct Ramirez sound and it has a lot of character! This guitar was obviously, loved and played extensively over the years, as it does have traces of nail marks below the clear sound hole golapador, from previous owner(s?). It is a most likely a classical, but could be flemanco....I am not sure? There are a few small dings on the guitar that would be expected of a great players guitar, over 50 years old. Most importantly....this guitar is solid and straight and sounds magnificent in the hands of a good guitarist. I regrettably, am just a collector who tried and failed to learn the guitar satisfactorily. If you are a player, you will fall in love with this Ramirez! It comes with a traditional ebony and leather capo, a synchrotone pitch pipe for spanish guitar, and a fast fret string cleaner. The nut and bridge bar appear to be black water buffalo horn, and the finger board, ebony. The tuning keys are beautiful amber color, with gold and black. They are most likey not the original ones. The bridge is rosewood I believe, and also likely not the original. The guitar also comes with a "Pwtection" padded soft case with red fleece lining. This will be a great deal for someone to own a magnificent Ramirez Guitar at an affordable price!
