From Jose Ramirez comes the 4NE classical guitar, boasting beautiful resonant tonewoods and remarkable craftsmanship, for an instrument of unmistakable beauty in substance and style.
This line was designed by José Ramírez III in 1986, and renewed by Amalia Ramírez in 2008 on its decoration and improved on its construction. This 4NE classical guitar is therefore a line of Ramírez exclusive models.
The classical guitar platform is a time-honored design, yielding the greatest sonic energy possible out of nylon strings. The profile and depth of the body offers bold lows, balanced mids, and shimmering highs with strong projection. The note begins with a strong attack and sustains with pronounced clarity. Classical guitar bodies are the prime choice for discerning fingerstyle artists looking for the timeless classical guitar tone.
The red cedar top on the Ramirez 4NE guitar paired with the Indian rosewood body produces a punchy attack and balanced strength in tone. The scarf joint adds strength to the cedar neck and creates the correct angle for the strings to rest securely across the nut. The ebony bridge and Indian rosewood fingerboard produce lasting sustain and ample projection throughout the instrument. Finally, the Jose Ramirez 4NE is dressed in a luxurious natural finish, letting the classical guitar's inherent beauty shine through for all to see.
The design features of the Ramírez guitars, both inside and out, including the template, decoration, tone, and the quality of sound and materials, are exclusively Ramirez. These nylon-string guitars are made outside the tiny Ramirez workshop, in limited runs, by carefully selected Spanish manufacturers. They are specifically and uniquely built for Ramírez and although their construction is not directly inspected by Amalia Ramírez, these classical guitars are finally adjusted in her workshop by her craftsmen, and under her personal supervision.
