ABOUT José Ramirez:

José Ramirez (1858–1923) was a Spanish luthier, the founder of Ramírez Guitars and of the Spanish luthier dynasty who continue to run it. His grandson José Ramirez III was in turn head of the company, and a noted innovator who made significant changes to the classical guitar.

He opened his own workshop in the Rastro and then at number 2, Concepción Jerónima Street. At that point, he started a tradition that has passed on from generation to generation, direct to the current 4th and 5th generations. Today, Amalia Ramírez is at the helm of this century-old company and she is responsible for teaching her niece and nephew, Cristina and José Enrique.
