This guitar was built in the famous Jose Ramirez workshop, which for over half a century has produced instruments performed on by countless professionals from Sting to Segovia, Chet Atkins to Sabicas and Lee Ritenour to Christopher Parkening.

Amalia Ramirez tells us that this model, Antigua – or Antique – is the result of requests to create a guitar more like the Ramirez guitars of the early 20th Century, and features a slightly smaller plantilla and a loose, old-world feel, but with modern power and projection. It is absolutely charming to play, very lyrical and responsive, and has a clean aesthetic. Overall a great addition to the Ramirez lineup. Includes a customized Ramirez BAM case.
