Ramirez Cut 1 Classical Guitar – Cutaway

Brand:

Instrument Categories: ,

The Ramírez Cut 1 Classical Guitar – cutaway (formerly Ramirez 2N CWE) ,  is intended for the working guitarist, requiring portability, flexibility and reinforced volume. It is a well balanced guitar, comfortable and with a bright sound, it has quite varied and defined voices. Rich in overtones. It has trebles with a high sustain ideal to create melodies.
It works very well with classical music, pop, jazz, pop and rock. We recommend its amplification to give a full performance to its rich sound.

Update ► For 2019, the Ramirez 2N CWE model has been renamed to the Ramirez Cut 1 Classical Guitar – Cutaway. The interior bracing, woods and tonal voice remains unchanged.

The Ramirez Cut 1 classical guitar features a cutaway body with a solid Red Cedar or German Spruce top. The back and sides are of laminated Indian Rosewood to reduce feedback and to enhance stability in the sometimes environmentally chaotic world of the working guitarist. As with other Ramírez guitars, the neck is Spanish Cedar and the fingerboard is Ebony, with an Indian Rosewood bridge. The finish is a gloss lacquer.

As a Cut 1 – Cutaway with electronics – there’s typically a pickup system installed, with controls on the upper bass side. The electronics are by Fishman or Schertler.

While the Ramirez Cut 1 Classical Guitar has a full 650mm scale length, the nut is slightly narrower at 50mm than a concert classical’s 52mm width. 

Well balanced guitar, comfortable and with a bright sound, it has quite varied and defined voices. Rich in overtones. It has trebles with a high sustain ideal to create melodies. It works very well with classical music, pop, jazz, pop and rock. We recommend its amplification to give a full performance to its rich sound.

Setup for new Ramirez guitars.

We carefully inspect and setup all new Ramirez guitars to ensure that they are in fully playable condition. We will do any additional setup adjustments according to the purchasers needs at no extra cost. 

Generally the “factory action” is in the range of  8/64” treble and 8.5/64” bass; the normal range of standard classical “concert” action height for players using typical classical right hand technique with an aggressive light right-hand attack.  We always adjust the nut slots to our preferred settings.

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 we generally stay with the current “standard” action height. 

We setup any new or used guitar we sell to suit the player;  Please 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) plus 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.
