A lovely new model, of limited production, brought out by Ramirez to celebrate their 130th year anniversary. Since its introduction in 2012 this has proved to be outstandingly popular instrument.

The tone has plenty of volume but is also well-balanced, with a bright singing treble and strong bass. Playability, typically for Ramirez instruments, is excellent. The extra decorative detail in the purfling, rosette and bridge is tasteful and distinctive.




A note to say how pleased I am with the Raimundo 128. It came with us for a week's holiday to Suffolk and I have been getting to know it. The playing has been coming back to me after a long interval; the guitar is very responsive with a warm singing tone.
