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.
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. This is the latest version of the popular "AE" model from Ramirez. It has been revamped, and features updated aesthetics, as well as all-solid woods throughout. They are easy to play and offer the famous Ramirez tone that many players crave. A new HumiCase Protege hardshell case is included with this guitar.
