❌SOLD❌ Ramirez 2NE CWE Cutaway Classical with MIDI pickup, 2017


Instrument Categories: , ,

The Ramirez 2NE CWE Cutaway model with Red Cedar top, along with its variant the Spruce top 3NE have been discontinued but were developed for the advanced student from Jose Ramirez III designs and were available with cutaway and electronics. A custom order RMC MIDI pickup system based on a six-element bridge pickup was another option, allowing the player to trigger any kind of MIDI controlled equipment.

Here we are looking at a very lightly used Ramirez 2NE CWE with the RMC MIDI pickup system, built during 2017. This guitar is technically not new but has been played very lightly and never in performance, as explained below. The original hard shell case is included.

Because these guitars in this configuration were almost always built by Ramirez to custom order, it is very rare to see one available – especially in pristine condition. If you’re a nylon string player who needs or wants to connect to MIDI gear, this is a great find.

This guitar is built first as a Ramirez 2NE CWE, with a cutaway body of Red Cedar top, Indian Rosewood back and sides, Spanish Cedar neck, Ebony for the fingerboard and Indian Rosewood for the headplate and bridge. (With a Spruce top, the designation was 3NE). The final E in the name denotes the installation of electronics.

Here’s Grant MacNeill explaining the Ramirez 2NE CWE Cutaway guitar:

This Ramirez 2NE-CWE guitar with MIDI pickup was special-ordered in late 2017 for an advanced player who plays with a hard “concert” right hand attack. He can’t make this new guitar work for him as he needs far higher action. In all other ways, this guitar is in nearly new condition and works as expected.

Ramirez designs the Marcel Dadi style Midi guitar with a positive neck angle permitting extra low action to suit the needs of a Latin-Jazz, Bossa-Nova style player.

While this is normally a very positive attribute, the relatively low action is a problem for this particular player, and we are selling the guitar at a $1000 discount for him as a favour. This is a great opportunity to get a RMC Midi system guitar!”
