Ramirez guitar question

Posted by Gary Rodriguez on Sun, 12/02/01 - 18:12:45.

Hi

According to Jose Ramirez 111 his 1969-1978 series guitars were catagorized A1 & A2 with the A2 being in his words of inferior materials. Yet Sherry-Brener was offering the A2 Ramirez for $2000 more than the A1. Does anyone have an idea about why an inferior guitar would be offered for more money?

Thank, Gary

I have never known the 2A to sale for more than the 1A. I live in Chicago and have been to Brenner's shop. He does have a stock of old ramirez guitars that have never been sold and he does ask a lot for them. I own a 1975 Ramirez 1A that I bought 4 years ago for $5,000. I still think that is a fair price at retail. Much depends on condition and whether or not the guitar is stamped by the individual builder on the inside of the heel. I would insure these guitars for 8-10,000 as I cannot see them doing anything but increasing in value. New Ramirez guitars of similar quality sell in that range.
