The Ramírez 125th Años commemorative model was an enormous success for Amalia Ramírez. As 2011 drew to a close, Ramirez Guitar representatives world-wide were concerned that these popular guitars would no longer be available. Fortunately, this guitar has been reborn as the new 130th Años Model, as the 130th anniversary of the Ramírez family business begins in 2012.

Ramirez has kept the original quality and spirit of the Ramírez 125 Años guitar alive but redesigned the Rosette and soundhole label for this new model: tone, balance and superb quality of woods throughout remains the same.

Amalia Ramírez has created the new Ramírez 130 Años model as a Limited Edition which will be built during the five years from 2012-2017, celebrating the 130th Anniversary of the Ramirez workshop! It is based on the model E series guitars, originally conceived by Jose Ramirez III.

This instrument features all solid wood construction, a complex asymmetrical 6-fan top strut pattern, a unique custom soundhole mosaic rosette, custom top marquetry perimeter and custom Ramirez label. The headstock shape represents the historical shape most often associated with early vintage Ramírez guitars.

The Ramírez 130th Años has an extremely wide tone pallet with a wide dynamic range and authoritative overall sonic presence that rivals many concert level instruments!

The design features are uniquely Ramírez in decoration, tone, and quality of sound and materials. These guitars are custom built for Ramírez in limited runs, by select Spanish Luthiers. They are specifically and uniquely built for Ramírez. Although their construction is not directly done by Amalia Ramírez, all guitars are inspected and adjusted in her workshop by her craftsmen under her personal supervision.

Available in Red Cedar top or in German Spruce top; both guitars are identical structurally.
Tonally the Cedar and Spruce top versions have very similar voice. One might hear only subtle differences; more bass power from the Cedar and clearer, more articulate trebles with Spruce. That said, the differences are subtle indeed!

Interestingly, these reasonably priced Spanish guitars have become our single largest selling model in this lower-middle price range; a reflection on the consistently excellent tone and balance of these reasonably priced guitars.

This is cedar top model made in 2012. The guitar has a very bold, powerful and rich sound with a lot of sustain. The playability is also great.

It has a hardly noticeable hairline crack on the top of the guitar parallel to the fretboard on the left side, as shown in one of the photographs. The crack was professionally repaired from the inside of the body by gluing a retainer plank, not affecting the sound in any way, but ensuring that the crack will not spread.

The guitar is clean and has no blemishes, except for a couple of very minor surface bumps which are shown in the pictures. It comes with a very nice Humicase Protege hard case and the original Ramirez paperwork.
