Hi. Can anyone help me out, who has a knowledge of Jose Ramirez guitars. An associate of mine, has a 1965 Jose Ramirez. I must identify the model, in order to assess its value. The guitar will be for a sale at a fair, and discounted price. If anyone knows these guitars, please e mail me at, and I will send 8 photos of the guitar. Thank you very much.

Couldn't post pictures. BB won't let me. Too big.

Hi, Pepe. Thanks for answering. I couldn't post them cause they are too large. I'd be happy to send them to anyone, who thinks they could identify the model of this 65' Jose Ramirez. Phazyme

I suggest you look at the label and try to see if the instrument is a "1a". This is the highest quality Ramirez of 1960's vintage. The label should carry the "1a" sign and the Ramirez signature. If not, check the Ramirez website for different labels, it might be a "2a" which means slightly more inferior quality of materials. 2a guitars are recognised by a red outline framing the label. They are also highly regarded. You can check the market value after you determine the model. Usually there are a number of Ramirez guitars for sale on e - b a y, these might give you an indication.

Good luck.
