José Ramírez Guitarra Del Tiempo Guitar - The Twelfth Fret

José Ramírez Guitarra Del Tiempo Guitar Reviewed

The new “Del Tiempo” Guitar celebrates 135 years of the historic “Casa Ramírez” established by José Ramírez I –  in 1882; currently enjoying its fifth generation of Ramírez family ownership. 

Designed by Maestro-Luthier Amalia Ramírez, the Del Tiempo is a continuation of the esteemed 130 Años model.   Typical of all Ramirez guitars, the classic “Spanish sound” is immediately apparent; full bass response, plenty of volume and warm, sensitive trebles with good balance through the entire range.

The Canadian Red Cedar top is standard, as favoured by Jose Ramirez III since the early 1960s. Plus the optional European spruce top offers a slightly crisper, brighter treble response.

Premium woods are used throughout the José Ramírez Guitarra Del Tiempo guitar with the same 130 Años bracing pattern; a complex, delicate six fan-brace system plus seven lesser braces.  Minor new changes include un-kerfed top linings, more slender back struts and two small one inch braces added adjacent to the sound-hole in the waist area.

As with all of our guitars there is no charge for setup for one year.

The “factory action” is in the range of  8/64” treble and 8.5/64” bass;  ideal for standard classical “concert” action for players using an aggressive rest-stroke, right-hand attack.

If you are playing in the Latin jazz style with free-stroke right hand technique and don’t anticipate using an aggressive rest stroke, then we normally lower the action.
