...Usually a B in these circumstances.

That's what I thought, but there are some players who use other variants, such as C or D...

It is tuned to B. I used it on a recording once and slackened the B off. I accidentally hit it in the recording a few times and it gave a very nice double bass slack tone which I left in the take. I did have a few goes at playing bass runs with the B into certain chords and could see the benefits but did not keep it up.

Heres the link to recording of the guitar. http://www.myspace.com/wwwhelpasacouk
Track is called Hope & play that I wrote for a friend who was ill and sadly since passed away.

A one take wonder on all the tracks and bear in mind I'm a singer/bass player first! heheheh. I think the lead guitar over it was either a Takemine G series or my Ovation Custom balladeer....I cannay remember.
I'll find out from Ken about the wood he used. I know he likes exotic and rare timbers.

Ok. Please, let him know my impressions about his guitar...

BTW: I spent several seasons during my youth (=in the eighties) in Leyland, Lancashire. I payed several visits to L'pool, Manchester, Blackpool, Morecambe, Lake Disctrict (=Windermere area), etc. Very interesting...

Best!! ;)

Hi Bobber,

Thank you VERY much!! Excellent photos...

They are in Sta. Isabel house (=Almeria) when he composed STF...

BTW: at my conference at Ramirez shop in Madrid last May the 9th., I gave the new that George's Ramirez Spanish guitar was bought by Klaus Voormann in May 1963, on his return back to Germany from Tenerife (=you already know: PM, GH, RS and Astrid Kirchherr spent 10 days at Voormann familiy house in Tenerife from April the 28th. to May the 10th that year. There are photos from those days which you probably know...) What I didn't know that very day (=i.e.: last May the 9th.) was George's Ramirez guitar whereabouts. I finally have found it: it's in Friar's Park. I'm trying to get a photo of it, although it's VERY difficult, because George's family is VERY private...

Best!! ;)

Nice picture, Xose. It's pretty hard to tell what guitar that is. Could well be one of the Russian ones.

There's a date underneath the picture. Could that be right?

I don't think so, as there is no signs of fret markers..

...There's a date underneath the picture. Could that be right?

That date looks like JAN 77 which, IMHO, do not correspond to the photo date...

Thanks!! ;)
