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 Jose Ramirez "Cut 1" model is a well balanced guitar, comfortable to play and has a rich, warm yet clear sound. It works very well as a classical guitar, but thanks to the cutaway, electronics and on-board equalization, players of pop, jazz, and other genres will feel at home on it as well - either as an acoustic or plugged in. It's fitted with the Fishman Prefix Problend, which delivers a beautiful, natural sound for the guitarist who prefers not to use a microphone.
