Julián Gómez Ramírez was born in Madrid in 1879. Already at the age of 13, he started working in the workshop of Augustín Andrés. In 1910, when he was 31, he worked for José Ramirez I. After this intensive and instructive time he was possibly coming to Paris as the first representative of the Spanish guitar in 1914 and revolutionized guitar-making in France. At this time, the French way of construction with its romantic guitars had become unpopular because of the immense popularity of the piano. In 1938, Julián Gómez Ramírez got to know Robert Bouchet (1898-1986) who bought a guitar from Ramírez. This was the beginning of a friendship and finally, J.G. Ramírez taught Robert Bouchet constructing guitars. Later, Robert Bouchet passed on his knowledge to Christian Aubin, who then, in the 1950s taught Daniel Friederich the art of lutherie. This rarity is in a very well preserved condition and shows smaller repairs. The guitar convinces through its rich and complex sound, clarity and big volume.
