Background

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.

Description

The newest guitar from Jose Ramírez is yet another stunning example of Spanish craftsmanship at its finest. The Guitarra del Tiempo was created to commemorate one hundred forty years of peerless Ramírez design and construction. This guitar features a newly-designed enhanced top-brace system that delivers articulate noting and full-bodied tone. The Guitarra del Tiempo's ample volume and reactive dynamics will satisfy the most demanding guitarist. This is a continuation of the Ramírez Anniversary models (and direct followup to the popular 130 Años), however unlike previous models, the Guitarra Del Tiempo will be a permanent addition to the comprehensive Ramírez line of classical and flamenco instruments (with rotating changes to the beautifully distinctive soundhole rosette). The warm, yet bold sound of the Guitarra del Tiempo is sure to exceed the player's expectations. You can feel its power in your belly; you can relish the lingering sustain of its harmonics across all six strings.
