I had completed a guitar rack this summer with two spare slots. I discovered that my old lute guitar fit so that left one last spot. I wanted to get something special as an early retirement gift to myself and I had been looking at 10 string classical guitars on the net.

So in a moment of weakness from a GAS attack I found a 1979 Ramirez 1a 10 String guitar on epray. It was a bit of a stretch at $3500 U.S. but it looked pretty nice from the pictures and the seller is a respected seller of 10 string guitars in Texas. I was nervous about it being stopped at the border due to CITES limitations on ebony and rosewood but the guitar made it through with no problems. Very speedy and safe shipping (thanks Cathedral Guitars).

I got the guitar today and haven't had much time to play with it yet but it looks pretty nice. Now I have to get used to the giant neck. Here's a couple snaps of it in my guitar rack, I'll have to take a few more of it when I get the chance.

That is a nice guitar rack. However you seem to have something that very few forum members possess: a stand with sheet music.

Thanks, I find that I play much more often now that I can just grab a guitar and not have to haul it out of its case. And the music stand is a bonus.LOL

Here are a few more pics of my Ramirez 1a 10 string. It was difficult to get a picture of the grain on the top as the guitar is so shiny. The reflections tended to wash out the pics. There are no imperfections on the top even though the reflections make it look like there is. The back finish is a little rough for some reason but this does not affect the sound and it still looks pretty good. I am afraid of trying to polish this out as I don't want to risk rubbing through the finish.
