I bought mine several years ago used and I'm still taken by the beauty of the instrument and it's superb tone every time I take it from the case and play. Lots of misinformation out there about who builds what at the Ramirez shop. Research it and you will find the Ramirez family scaled back in the late 90's and started to build them entirely instead of farming out work. The guitar reflects the pride in the family name. I have found Savarez Alliance (red label) strings, normal tension to be the best for my playing. Don't see many used out there, there is a reason why, once you locate one, you won't want to give it up either.
Whether I am playing with amplification of just accoustical, the sound in superb. It works well for classical, some flamenco and for Charlie Byrd type jazz it couldn't be better.The workmanship on this guitar is breath taking.A perfect instrument for the cross over player --and I highly recommend it.
As a classical guitarist, I'm always looking for a guitar that has a lot of options. This guitar fits the mold perfectly. Dark, bright, lively, or complex, this guitar can handle many songs. It records well, too. It's strings are a little close together, but since its an all around guitar, one can't help that. But otherwise, it's worth the money.
If you can afford it, buy this guitar without hesitation. This is undoubtedly my best guitar and I own a few. I jusr received my Ramirez a month ago and it is already my go to guitar for solo gigs. The playability is unmatched and although it may not be as loud as my Humphrey acoustically, once you plug it in prepare to be blown away. It looks great and smells fabulous. It's excellent for bossa and crossover jazz as well as comping on pop tunes. I did a recording session the other day and my Ramirez sounded wonderful. Just a great, great guitar.
Still the best guitar I've ever played. I've looked for years for a guitar, I'm a picky player, and finally came across this beauty. The quality of this is unsurpassed and the sound is excellent. Even to the non-trained ear the guitar sounds much louder and resonates a lot better than most highly priced guitars. I've tried ones that are double the cost of this and wasn't satisfied. My only gripe is that the frets are wider than the fret board and so they scratch the hell out of your hands when playing. Otherwise worth every penny.
I just went down to Spain to pickup this beauty and I must admit this is the guitar I wanted for the last 10 years. This guitar with the Digital sound is absolute a Very high end classical guitar.It sounds good beeing played acoustic as well as on amplified sound the Sound system is great and have all what your heart desire for bringing out the sound. This is the Ramirez sound, I also tried the 4CWE also with the Auro system in, the difference between the 2 guitars is the Palisander wood on the sides instead of the Indian Rosewood this gives the 4CWE a more Spruce sound compared to the 2CWE.Right now I'm playing with the strings that came with the guitar "Jose Ramirez" strings but in the very near future I will try to develope the sound in the guitar using "Hannabach Gold" 825-MT Gold plated.
There's nothing like a Ramirez for sound and beauty. There are many fine guitars out there... some are even better, but there is nothing on the market that beats the 2CWE for price and performance. This guitar even smells great when you open the case. The cedar is tight grained and aromatic. I own 8 high level custom guitars and the 2CWE is my favorite.
This is the best sounding guitar I've played in 30 years - clean, brilliant, with character. Tuners and Fishman pickup are well matched. Appearance is gorgeous with cutaway rosewood body, ebony fretboard, and cedar top. I've never been so impressed.
This is one beautiful guitar. I own a Ramirez FL2 flamenco and it is also wondrful. the 2cwe has a great neck that's so easy to play. The cutaway and 50 mm neck are awesome for fast passages.The guitar smells great, looks brilliant, and blows away all solid-body guitars I own, including a fine Conde Hermanos. You won't be sorry...and when you plug it in Look out, you may have tears in your eyes, it's that good. buy this guitar and never look back.
Just bought it off the shelf,,,, a beautifull sounding guitar, with a warm sound and crystal clear highs, the craftmanship is superb , I put Addarios Pro-Argte X-tra heavy gauge strings, this guitar brings every note to life.
this guitar is really nice. after trying many a/e classicals, the 2cwe is by far the best. the separation of the low, mid, and high frequencies are very clear.
I'm not one to spend my time writing reviews, but the 2CWE is too good a guitar to let this go unacknowledged among guitarists. I own several high-end Taylors, and traded in a very nice Tak SC-132ce for a Taylor NS32-ce, but when I played the Ramirez, there was no contest!!! It plays beautifully, deep warm tonality, perfect intonation, the Fishman pre-amp brings it all out to whatever monitor/amp system you have. The 2CWE is, by far, my most favorite of all my guitars. It's not cheap, but it plays better than any $4,000+ guitar I've ever tried. This is a guitar I know will never leave my ever changing collection of fine instruments.
