  • Comments:

    Needing no introduction of course, the ubiquitous Ramirez 1a was the default concert artist's choice back in the 60's and 70's. Whilst there are many other options today, there are many who appreciate their qualities, particularly for playing the traditional Spanish repertoire with which they can offer a special character with recall to the recordings of Segovia, Christopher Parkening and so many others. Sensibly-priced, this is opportunity to have one in very pleasing condition.
