Ramirez Model 1a Classical Guitar Cedar Top Brazilian Rosewood, 1971

Ramirez Model 1a Classical Guitar Cedar Top Brazilian Rosewood, 1971

The Ramirez Model 1a is the benchmark for professional grade concert classical guitars. Available in full 650 and longer scale lengths, this is one the instruments that brought the style to prominence in the 1960s. Here we’re looking at a long scale – 664mm – Ramirez Model 1a built during 1971 at Concepcion Jeronima No. 2, the shop Ramirez occupied from 1882 to 1971. In the early 1960s, growing demand required that the real production move to a new location, on Calle del Gral. Margallo, and in 1971, the storefront was moved across the street to Concepcion Jeronima No. 2.

José Ramirez Auditorio Duo 1a Professional : Double-Top Guitar

José Ramirez Auditorio Duo 1a Professional : Double-Top Guitar

The José Ramírez Auditorio 1a Professional Double-Top Guitar is based on the famous Ramírez 1a Traditional model with one remarkable difference: it is fitted with a Cedar “double-top”. Master-Luthier Amalia Ramírez has been working with double tops for several years. She has been determined to incorporate this 21st century concept into a new model of Ramírez guitar. After a great deal of experimentation she has perfected the design and announced this new model to the public for 2010. Double-top construction is growing in popularity as luthiers around the world adapt this modern technology to their guitars. This unique construction allows the tops to be much thinner than conventional tops.
