This is a MG-stamped (signifies that Manuel Contreras was the builder) Ramirez from 1962. Spruce top and 1/4-sawn Brazilian rosewood back and sides. It has a large open back crack and the back came unglued from the interior back brace, a back center seam separation, a crack in the side near the butt and a small top crack along the fret board. The bridge has been reglued and there is some glue residue around the bridge. The fret edges are sticking out of the fretboard from dryness. There is a crack in the peghead near the low e-string, and a couple of the tuner barrels are cracked. Typical high and unadjustable action. In has a nice brown Lifton hardshell case.
