Vintage Torres / Ramirez School Flamenco Guitar

Antonio De Torres, or Perhaps Manuel Ramirez


Flamenco Guitar

Up for consideration is a vintage flamenco guitar in the design of Antonio De Torres. It is has been identified by one Torres expert as a genuine Torres guitar. However, a second expert thinks it was made by Manuel Ramirez. Your own experts may well have yet another idea. Nonetheless, here is a rare chance to pick up a wonderful Spanish flamenco guitar by perhaps one of the world's most revered guitar makers!!!

I got this guitar from Early Musical I was an employee back in the early 1980s in Basle, Switzerland, and wonderful vintage instruments like this would walk in the door on almost a daily basis. 1270 DPI high-resolution photos are here. This guitar has an original spruce top, original Spanish cypress sides, and a non-original replacement back, and comes with the original leather case. Unfortunately, there is no label. I have attempted to give you all the details, photos, and measurements so you can come to your own determination as to its maker and authenticity.

This guitar is currently in need of restoration. If it is a Torres / Ramirez one would want to replace the back and the back binding, which was not a high quality repair, and is coming loose. The top binding is also loose in places. The tap plates are not attached to the guitar but were found inside the case compartment along with the strings. One of the tuning pegs is missing.
