The House of Ramirez has for many years (since 1882!) constructed the finest quality classical instruments played by many of the world's top recitalists including the legendary Andres Segovia, Narciso Yepes, Julian Bream, Xuefei Yang, Alexandre Lagoya, Christopher Parkening, Kazuhito Yamashita, Liona Boyd, Laurindo Almeida, Alirio Diaz, Jose Luis Gonzales, Antonio Lauro, Oscar Ghiglia, Mills ...
The Professional 1a instruments are now subject to limited production. The Tradicional Model was designed some forty years ago by Jose Ramirez III. It has a special interior construction. The projection and playability and bright, colourful tone of this instrument are exceptional. What more can be said of instruments of this pedigree - the legend continues!
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.
