Ramírez 2 NE and 3 NE models – Guitarras de Estudio


Ramírez 2 NE and 3 NE models – Guitarras de Estudio with Ramírez case

Advanced Student Concert Model

Based on the of the 1990s model E series guitars, developed from designs conceived by Jose Ramirez III, Amalia Ramírez created the NE models as an affordably priced, all-solid-wood instrument for the serious student of classical guitar.

These instruments feature all solid wood construction, an asymmetrical 6 top-strut fan brace pattern, a unique custom soundhole mosaic rosette and custom Ramirez label. The headstock shape is the standard modern pattern associated with Ramirez guitars.

Available in Red Cedar top as the model 2NE and in German Spruce top as the model 3NE. Both guitars are identical structurally.

Tonally these instruments are very similar but one might hear subtle differences between Spruce and Cedar: more bass power from the Cedar and clearer, more articulate trebles with Spruce. That said, the differences are subtle.

The design features are uniquely Ramirez in decoration, tone, and quality of sound and materials. These guitars designed by Amalia Ramírez and inspected and adjusted in her workshop by her craftsmen under her personal supervision.
These reasonably priced Spanish guitars enjoy great popularity for serious
students for a lower price range guitar; a reflection of the consistently excellent tone and balance of these reasonably priced guitars.

Price includes the Italian made Ramirez case and full setup according to our workshop standards.

Setup  For New Ramirez guitars.

We carefully inspect and setup all new Ramirez guitars to ensure that they are in perfect working order.

Generally the “factory action” is in the range of 8/64” treble and 8.5/64” bass. This is in the normal range of standard classical “concert” action height for players using typical classical right hand technique with an aggressive light right-hand attack.

Nut height; we always adjust the nut slots to our preferred settings.

We will do any setup adjustments the purchaser requires and install new strings of your choice for no extra cost.

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 would advise that we lower the action before shipping. If you are an aggressive player, then I would recommend staying with the current “standard” action height.

It is a given that we will setup any guitar we sell to suit the player; it is best if you can provide as much information as possible about your playing style so we can make an informed decision on how to setup the guitar – your right hand picking attack; free stroke vs. rest-stroke – Classical right hand position vs. Chet or Latin style hand position – your estimation of your normal action height on your current guitars (low vs. medium or high) and anything else that will help us to setup your guitar appropriately.

Due to international agreements,new Ramírez guitars cannot be shipped to the USA. 
There are no shipping restrictions on used Ramírez or on any other new or used guitars.
