The José Ramirez Guitarra Del Tiempo Studio classical guitar celebrates 135 years of the historic ‘Casa Ramírez’ established by José Ramírez I in 1882, currently enjoying its 5th generation of Ramírez family ownership. The Guitarra del Tiempo was created to commemorate one hundred forty years of peerless Ramírez design and construction. This guitar features a newly-designed enhanced top-brace system that delivers articulate noting and full-bodied tone. The Guitarra del Tiempo’s ample volume and reactive dynamics will satisfy the most demanding guitarist.
Designed by Maestro-Luthier Amalia Ramírez, the Ramírez Guitarra del Tiempo is a continuation of the esteemed 130 Años model. Typical of all Ramirez guitars, the classic ‘Spanish sound’ is immediately apparent; full bass response, plenty of volume and warm, sensitive trebles with good balance through the entire range.
The Canadian Red cedar top is standard, as favoured by Jose Ramírez III since the early 1960s. An optional European spruce top offers a slightly crisper, brighter treble response.
Premium woods are used throughout the Ramírez Guitarra del Tiempo with the same bracing pattern as used on the 130 Años guitars – a complex, delicate six fan-brace system plus seven lesser braces. Minor new changes include un-kerfed top linings, more slender back struts and two small 1 inch braces added adjacent to the sound-hole in the waist area.
The Ramírez Guitarra Del Tiempo is an excellent choice for the advanced and intermediate player looking for tone and volume typical of many Concert-grade guitars at double the price.
