The point is that some years after Massari Kohno came out with an instrument as powerful as Ramirez if not more, with 650 mm diapason and comfortable round neck.
Beside Kohno also other local competitors of Ramirez like Contreras and Bernabè could build you a guitar with a shorter fretboard.
Obviously Ramirez updated his famous 1a model making a shorter diapason.
Ramirez still makes both scales. When you order a 1a or ‘Traditional’, you have the option of specifying 650 or 664. John Mills chose a 2012 1a with 664mm scale on his 2013 recording “Segovia, The Ramirez Years” to ‘promote an authenticity of tone’ from that era.
