For over half a century, the name of Jose Ramirez 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.
Built to the highest standards of Spanish construction, the guitars in the R line are an affordable alternative to the NE and Concert lines. Without the cypress-lined back and sides, these guitars are an adaptation of the traditional Ramirez designs. They are known to be lightweight and quick to respond. The handmade R4 features a Canadian red cedar top with solid Indian rosewood back and sides. The neck is made of Spanish cedar with an ebony fingerboard. A new HumiCase Protege hardshell case is included with this guitar.
