One of the most desirable concert classical guitars ever made.
This model was originally designed by Jos Ramrez III in the 1960's. Since then the Ramirez 1a has been the standard by which Spanish guitars are compared. It is a premier instrument of top quality in workmanship and materials. Today the Ramirez workshop is under the supervision of his granddaughter Amalia Ramirez, who has re-adopted this revered model with its deep, potent sound that is rich in harmonics.
The Traditional 1a has a premium red cedar top and beautiful bookmatched Indian rosewood back and sides.The cedar neck is topped with an ebony fretboard and a bone nut, and has a strip of ebony for structural reinforcement. The traditional slotted headstock is faced with Indian rosewood and is fitted with engraved exposed gear gold tuners with ivoroid buttons. The rosette is a mosaic of red roses entwined by green stems. The rosewood bridge features a bone saddle and a bone bordered harness for securing the string ends.
The Traditional 1a is a world class instrument has the balanced powerful tone, beauty, and playability associated with classic Ramrez guitars and comes with a European made hardshell case.
