This is Wolfgang Jellinghaus’ tribute to the 1912 Manuel Ramirez (built by Santos Hernandez) that Andres Segovia played for the first 25 years of his career, the original now housed in the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.
All details of the original have been carefully reproduced which the exception of the materials used for the back and sides – for this model, Wolfgang has chosen gorgeous European flamed maple, a wood seen on many original Manuel Ramirez and Santos Hernandez instruments.
The guitar is lightly built, with explosive response, making it incredibly easy to play. It also has a the sleek, easy neck shape for the left hand. Overall a very impressive concert guitar, and a meticulously well-produced tribute to one of history’s most iconic instruments.
Made in the Milestone Luthier Centre, that was founded in the year 2013 by Wolfgang Jellinghaus & Michael Zhang.
The goal of the Milestone Luthier Centre is to rebuild the history of classic guitar making by selecting six different master builders from the past 230 years who set new standards for the guitar making in terms of construction & sound
