From the collection of Rose Augustin from New York.
This is an exceptionally well preserved Ramirez Flamenco guitar dated to 1959.
The top is spruce and extremely lightly braced with five shallow fan struts.
The sound is both powerful and penetrating.
The foot and the inside of the guitar is stamped internally with the builders’s initials “AM” most likely Antonio Martinez Ortega.
Martínez is the same maker who built for Andrés Segovia and Christopher Parkening.
No cracks and no repairs ever done.
There has been a very light French re-polising to the body.
