José Ramírez Auditorio 1a Professional: New Double-Top Guitar

José Ramírez Auditorio 1a Professional: New 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.
