Jose Ramirez Manuel Ramirez
In the early 1990′s, Amalia Ramirez and her brother Jose IV traveled to New York City to visit the Metropolitan Museum of Art and see the famous guitar handcrafted in the workshop of Manuel Ramirez – the very guitar given to Andres Segovia in 1912. They studied, measured, and photographed the guitar extensively, with the intent of creating a reproduction. After several years of preparation, the first guitar was unveiled in 2003. The result is a spectacular instrument, handcrafted in the spirit of the old world, where charm, elegance of tone and great attention to aesthetic beauty were the highest virtues. With a projected 30 instruments to be built over the course of 5 years, this model is a limited edition, and is built with only the finest materials and highest degree of workmanship.
A hardshell case is included with this guitar.
