The job of a guitar maker or constructor of instruments is beautiful: it takes time to gain the skill with the tool, to understand the wood, to carefully build and also to hear, that is, to achieve what the musician is looking for.
We are a family workshop that deeply respects professionals that are devoted to this wonderful job and that, with their good work, they can construct a fair competition that is able to encourage us all to evolve and adapt to new times.
Nevertheless, it is not the first time that a client comments us how bad he has been told about us by other trade colleague; they say we give bad services and a number of improprieties that are far from the fair competition we have been talking about. Luckily, many times these badly-informed clients could see for themselves that these accusations were not true, other times they have lost the opportunity to see it, because they didn’t dare to come. Recently a foreigner was about not to visit us out of fear, fortunately he did, he told us the story, he told us that our service had been exceptional and finally he discovered that we had more competitive prices than the ones he was given by the guitar maker that ensured the opposite (...)
We will be at NAMM show from 25th to 29th. We will launch our new studio guitars, electric guitar and handcrafted Plain Concert model. Visit us and try them!
In Ramírez Guitars we are always willing to improve, and with this aim we have created new studio models.
After working for months revising templates, fan bracings, thickness, woods … we have managed to improve the sound and quality of our range of guitars designed by ourselves. Similarly, the mosaics have changed following the personal style of Amalia Ramírez. It is a perfect combination of a great sound and high standards of quality and beauty, distinctive imprint of this firm.
As a committed company, and in support of a fair trade, we only work with Spanish factories with production in Spain that gives over a space to construct our high range studio designs.
All these guitars are carefully checked and adjusted in our workshop to guarantee our quality.
When my great granduncle Manuel Ramírez died, his officials, Modesto Borreguero, Santos Hernández and Domingo Esteso, continued for some years in his workshop with Manuel Ramírez’ widow.
As far as we know, Filomena Vera Cervelló, Manuel’s widow, was not a guitar maker. But Manuel’s workshop became her property; Filomena reopened it on 16th May 1918, two years after the death of her husband. As what she sold was the name of Manuel Ramírez, and her officials were not yet known since what they did was to reproduce the work of their master not having developed their own work yet, they reached an agreement with his widow of mutual interest, according to which in the label of their guitars should appear “Viuda de Manuel Ramírez”, and at the same time they would write their initials inside so they would obviously be acquiring individual recognition; even though, being in the Ramírez workshop, they still used his templates, designs, techniques and materials. It is easy to deduce that, being as they were excellent guitar constructors, no wonder they had had a great teacher, when they achieved recognition by themselves, not in the shadow of Manuel, the three of them set up on their own, and of course developed their own models and obtained well-deserved fame.

My nephew José Enrique and I landed in Kuala Lumpur the 22nd of October in the afternoon. We were picked up in the airport by Andrew Chew, the general manager of the Guitar Store, our distributors in Malaysia, and he took us to the hotel to leave our luggage and refresh ourselves a little. The hotel was communicated with a mall, which in turn was communicated with another mall… so we could see during our stay that the malls have invaded the city and are interconnected. And we understood that there is a good explanation for that, as the heat and humidity are so high, mainly at this time of the year when it is constantly raining, it turns out that life is wonderful in one of these shopping centers, a haven where you can enjoy a nicely regulated temperature to hang around. Still we went out the street, it rained all of a sudden more than once – and really torrential rains – and anyway we ventured to visit the Batu Caves, which entrance is guarded by a golden statue 137,8 feet high. It is a Hindu temple, apparently the biggest spiritual Hindu centre out of India. To access the temple, we heroically went up the 272 steps, and we even took pictures with the monkeys that live there (...)

Rosalia and Raul Refree with our Guitarra de Tablao in front of the Guernica.
I cannot do other than conveying my deepest admiration.
During the three weeks I have been evaluating the Auditorio guitar you have left me as a deposit, and after more or less one hundred hours of use, I have gone through three stages:
First of all, I had the feeling I was riding a wild and powerful horse, unruly and elusive.
Secondly, I threw myself into prompting nuances and diverse tones, balance of low-high (this is essential) and nobility of expression. Perform in a high tune without stridencies and without this annoying and dull 'heavy' sound so common in other guitars. With a challenging stubbornness I was given bits.
And finally today, I've just realized I cannot get rid of it, due to its quick capacity to accommodate to my demands and the extraordinary and wide dynamic range it provides and that can enhance my expressiveness. It seems to be defiant, as if it were saying: ask for more things.
In short, I believe it is an extraordinary instrument.

New "del Tiempo" Guitar: It is a commemorative guitar that celebrates the history of "Casa" Ramírez. This model has been created to celebrate 135 years since the beginning of this wonderful adventure of construcing guitars by José Ramírez I in 1882. Currently we have reached the fifth generation and we still feel as enthusiastic as we did then.
