1975 Ramirez 1a
Here are some AFTER photos of my 1975 Ramirez
1a, after the 10-string conversion process. Click here for High Resolution photos.
This guitar has a new lacquer finish, a tall bridge saddle
and low action. It fixes all of the problems inherent to a 1970s
Ramirez, while at the same time adding a Ramirez copy 10-string
neck. The guitar looks like a new Ramirez 10-string guitar. Only
the bridge tie block is not an exact Ramirez copy.
This is now a magnificent instrument, with that same big,
warm Ramiez sound, now with exceptional resonance. It is now
in 650 mm scale and in Romantic tuning and still has great bass
response down to low A. I much prefer the sound of this new lacquer
to the Ramirez lacquer. In fact, the voice of the guitar is very
similar to when it was a 6-string and had the French Polish,
so you can get a very good idea before converting what the 10-string
will sound like.
This 10-String Conversion is now SOLD at USA $3,750, including
2nd Day USA Shipping.
