Sold for $2,012.00 – 30 bids
Discovered at Goodwill of Orange County’s La Habra Store
Very few names have been as influential in the development and history of the guitar as the name José Ramírez.

He worked to develop his skills and in 1882, he founded the José Ramírez workshop. Now in its fourth generation, the Ramírez name continues to be the gold standard by which all other Spanish classical and flamenco guitars are measured.
