The ’130 Years’ Ramirez

Posted on: May 23rd, 2013 by Julie No Comments


Just in – our latest delivery of the superb ’130 Years’ model by Jose Ramirez.

This instrument is turning out to be as hugely popular as its predecessor, the ’125 Years’ model. Both are of limited edition, designed in celebration of the landmark anniversaries of  the House of Ramirez, Spain’s longest established guitar maker, which is commensurate with a skill and experience in lutherie that is truly peerless.

Constructed with all-solid woods, with a bone nut and saddle and available with either a spruce (pictured) or cedar top, this guitar is a wonderful showcase for the talents of its designer, the current head of the workshop, Amalia Ramirez. Comfortable to play and with excellent volume, it has the characteristically warm, golden ‘Ramirez’ tinge that seems to bleed into the tone colour of even the less expensive ‘Estudio’ ranges – from which this model is such an excellent example.

See the website listing for further details of the ’130 Years’ in spruce or cedar.
