About This Listing

This desription is taken from Guitar Salon International:
For over half a century, the name of  is perhaps the most recognized to classical and flamenco guitar aficionados. Ramirez instruments have been performed on by countless professionals from Sting to Segovia, Chet Atkins to Sabicas and Lee Ritenour to Christopher Parkening.

Designed with a unique template, decorations, tone, quality of sound and materials that are synonymous with the Ramirez brand. The 1NE features a solid red cedar top, Indian rosewood back and sides, and an ebony fingerboard. The NE line is the new and improved "E" line, which was designed by Jose Ramirez III in 1986. Amalia Ramirez created the NE line in 2008 by updating the pattern on the "E" line's rosettes, purflings and tie blocks. When it comes to the basic construction of these guitars, Amalia stayed true to her father's original designs. These guitars are slightly lighter in weight, but the NE guitars still sing with the same beautiful, rich tones that are characteristic of Jose Ramirez guitars.

Specifics about this guitar:

I Purchased it in 2017 as I needed a new high level student/ concert guitar and it did not disappoint. Once I got this instrument I became a better player. Not merely because this is a great instrument, but because of its big sound and clarity. I was then forced to hone my technique in order to sound good on this instrument. This Ramirez is near and dear to my heart as this was the instrument I performed most of my undergraduate recitals on. This guitar has also seen the world with me. It traveled with me during my time in the Netherlands and Spain in 2017 and 2018.

There are small finish dings on the top on this guitar from the few years that I have owned it and one string bite under the bridge (all of which are photographed).
It will also come with a Humicase Metro II case, which is an amazing hardshell humidified case and a Visenut case cover. Easily $300 worth of extras. Lastly, just for clarification even with the small dings on the top this guitar was babied by me the entire time I've owned it. When I was playing it regularly I restrung it every month and polished the body, oiled the fretboard and polished the frets. This guitar was loved and taken care of.

Lastly, I am selling this guitar for what it was appraised a year ago from JohnPaul at GSI. I feel it is a very great deal considering there are other INE's out there selling for a few hundred dollars more, but have arguably not been loved and taken care of like mine. 

I know I will miss this guitar when I sell it, but I have another guitar that I purchased in 2019 that is now my primary guitar and I am a firm believer that a guitar should be played and not stored in a case. 

Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have!
