In the decade 1960-1970 is widely consider to have been the Golden Age of Ramirez when Andres Segovia was playing a Ramirez and Jose Ramirez III had gathered and trained the best luthiers of the next generation: Felix Manzanero, Manuel Contreras I, Ignacio M. Rozas, Antonio Martinez, Paulino Bernabé (forman of the workshop) among others. In this era, possibly the best “José Ramirez III” guitars were built. The Ramirez master craftsman who built particular instrument was Ignacio Manzanos Rozas who stamped IM is found inside the guitar. Ignacio M. Rozas (b. 1943) worked for Jose Ramirez III from 1959 to 1969, and then joined the Contreras shop, where he worked from 1970 to 1979, before he opened his own shop. Although retired in February of 2008, he has a bench in Paulino Bernabe's workshop that he uses from time to time. The guitars Ignacio made while at Ramirez are highly prized. This guitar is a master piece of the luthier's art, impeccably made of the finest woods, and like Segovia's guitar is made with a string scale of 664mm, and 54mm nut. Nonetheless, it is very comfortably set up (4 mm to  3 mm at the 12th fret on 6th and 1st strings respectively). The guitar itself is in excellent condition, no cracks, no repairs, all original. The finish shows some minor player top wear: nail marks and a string ding.
