José Ramírez 1977 Flamenco Guitar negra

José Ramírez 1977 Flamenco Guitar negra.

José Ramírez was born in Madrid in 1858. At the age of 12 he began working as an apprentice in the workshop of his Maestro Francisco González. The Gonzales shop was located on the Carrera de San Jerónimo street in Madrid. The Ramirez dynasty began when José opened his own workshop in the famous El Rastro in Madrid. José Ramírez was recognized as an outstanding master guitar maker. In fact, flamenco guitarists would frequently approach him to find a solution for better projection of sound…. And that's how José created the "tablao guitar." Although he worked according to the design by Torres, he built a larger flamenco model than most classical guitars in those days. The tablao guitar brought him much success, ever since the name Ramirez gained an unbeatbale reputation for reliable, high quality instruments and major innovations in guitar construction.

From the workshop of Jose Ramirez this is an magnificent and rare example of an incredibly well preserved flamenco guitar from the late seventies. The top had one crack that has been repaired, so no further repairs are needed. From the previous owner we know that she used to belong to Manolo Sanlúcar who has played this negra for many years. She projects a very mature authentic flamenco sound with a lot of depth and richness expressing like a big personality with an excellent balance. Beautiful and rare, this is certainly another of the most collectible flamenco guitars we have at La Sonanta. Both highly collectible and desirable for the serious performer.
