The Ramirez family has been building fine and high-quality guitars since 1882. These instruments were and are played by some of the greatest guitarists in the world such as Julian Bream, Andres Segovia, Laurindo Almeida, Oscar Ghiglia, Jose Luis Gonzales and many more. The Ramirez family is part of the history of the classical guitar. Jose Ramirez I (1858-1923) trained a large number of luthiers in his workshop at the end of the nineteenth and beginning of the twentieth century. José Ramirez III (1922-1995) was a precursor in the use of Cedar as a top-wood and built several guitars for Andres Segovia.
This José Ramirez 1A built in 2017 has a fantastic “Spanish” sound. It has all the sound qualities of the best 1960s José Ramirez coupled with the great playability of the modern 65 cm scales instruments. It is a super-responsive guitar with plentiful of sustain, big basses and colourful trebles.
