This guitar was made by Manuel Contreras while he worked for Jose Ramirez. Stamped with Manuel Contreras's encircled initials: "M.G." on the foot of the neck. It is identical in every respect to that featured on pp.98-99 of Sheldon Urlik's book on Fine Spanish Guitars - and, is probably in better condition. Totally flawless and original. The best you will ever see. Comes with original case in excellent condition, original polish cloth, unopened case key envelope, as well as a brochure in Spanish and English on proper guitar care from the Ramirez shop, inscribed with original owner's name ("Q. Cunningham" of Tennessee), the present owner bought it from his estate. The son told him that his deceased father bought it new at the Ramirez shop on a trip to Spain. Featherweight - only 1080g fully strung (70g lighter than Urlik's at 1155g!) (1080g = 38.1oz = 2.4lbs) The present owner reports that it has crystal clear trebles, (esp the 3rd - the traditional weak link); beautiful hallmark early-'60's Ramirez flamenco tone, fast action with no buzz, (unless you really dig in). Lots of volume.
