Description

For over half a century, the name of Jose Ramirez is perhaps the most recognized to classical and flamenco guitar aficionados. Ramirez instruments have been performed on by countless professionals from Sting to Segovia, Chet Atkins to Sabicas and Lee Ritenour to Christopher Parkening.

Designed with a unique template, decorations, tone, quality of sound and materials that are synonymous with the Ramirez brand. The 1NE features a solid red cedar top, Indian rosewood back and sides, and an ebony fingerboard. The NE line is the new and improved "E" line, which was designed by Jose Ramirez III in 1986. Amalia Ramirez created the NE line in 2008 by updating the pattern on the "E" line's rosettes, purflings and tie blocks. When it comes to the basic construction of these guitars, Amalia stayed true to her father's original designs. These guitars are slightly lighter in weight, but the NE guitars still sing with the same beautiful, rich tones that are characteristic of Jose Ramirez guitars.

For more information on Ramirez, be sure to read The Ramirez Family: Masters of the Guitar, or for information on the Ramirez family members, from Amalia Ramirez back to Jose I and for some interesting fact-checking on myths and facts about this legendary workshop.
