1975 Ramirez 6-String to 10-String Conversion



10-String Conversion

1975 Ramirez 1a

Here are some BEFORE photos of my 1975 6-string Ramirez 1a, before the 10-string conversion process. Click here for the AFTER photos.

This guitar is has some repaired cracks, and a very low bridge saddle, and the saddle slot has been filed down to lower the action. The guitar has been refinished in French Polish. Also, the fingerboard looks like it may have been removed at one time. The conversion should raise the bridge saddle, giving the guitar a good break angle, and at the same time lowering the action.

This is a great-sounding guitar, with a big, warm Ramiez sound, with excellent resonance. This will of course be greatly enhanced with the addition of 4 additional strings.

This 10-String Conversion is now SOLD at USA $3,750, including 2nd Day USA Shipping.
