José Ramirez of Madrid

  • Year:

    2000 - classe 1a. F.656.P Number Z4.050

  • Body:

    East Indian rosewood - good quality with straight grain lines, single line purflings and rosewood bindings.

  • Front:

    Canadian cedar - looks well quarter-sawn and fine-grained. With the maker's well-recognised rosettes for flamencos, original golpeador and rosewood bridge

  • Tuners:

    Fustero with lyre pattern sideplates and synthetic, white pearl buttons

  • Scale:

    654mm. 19 frets on the ebony fingerboard

  • Neck Width:

    52mm at the nut

  • Weight:

    1534 grams

  • Condition:

    In clean and tidy condition.
    There is one surface crack in the cedar, below the bridge and about 6.5cm in length. It looks that it may not be through the depth of the wood - although inside there is a glued fabric patch which may have been done in Madrid when new.
    The polish at one end of the bridge shows a crack line, commonly seen - but this is certainly not in the wood.
    Neither of the above has any effect on sound and are highly unlikely to change.
    Other than that, just a few small, normal playing marks.

  • Comments:

    Here is a year 2000 1a flamenco negra from Ramirez, to be sold at a price reflecting the under-patched crack in the cedar.
    At around £6000 when new, this will be sold at half that price, which is therefore a bargain waiting for somebody.
