US $.5500 Ignacio M Rozas 1A spruce 1997, Santa Clara CA

Post by opticguy2000 » Thu Nov 17, 2016 3:04 am

Make: Ignacio M. Rozas
Model: Concert 1A
Year: 1997
Made In: Spain
Scale Length: 650/52
Spruce Top
Brazillian Rosewood Back & Sides
Asking: $5500

This guitar was constructed by Ignacio M. Rozas in 1997.  Rozas apprenticed as a guitar maker with José Ramirez, working there from 1959 to 1969. After leaving Ramirez, he worked for Manuel Contreras (also a former Ramirez Luthier) until 1987 when he set up his own shop. Ignacio M. Rozas is considered one of the great Luthiers that came out of Jose Ramirez III School, like Bernabe, Contreras and Manzanero.
It combines a typical Spanish character with a big and bold projection and refinement of the highest level, with great depth in every single note, excellent separation, and substance. The bass is rich and profound, the mid powerful and the trebles rounded and clear. The guitar is capable of filling a concert hall.
The guitar is in excellent condition with no cracks or repairs. Playability is excellent, the action perfect, the tone has that certain magic found in matured guitars on this level only.
Shipped with insurance to lower 48 states. Shipping may vary based on zip code Local pickup preferred

Good, but not express. A Simon Ambridge sold here a year or two ago in about two hours, from memory.

Good memory Peter! I missed that sale by a few minutes. It was a spruce/Madagascar RW sold by "Choro" on Sat Jul 18, 2015, and I have not seen him around for a while.
