Classical perfection.

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 Jos Ram­rez III in 1986, and renewed by Amalia Ram­rez in 2008 on its decoration and improved on its construction. This 4NE classical guitar is therefore a line of Ram­rez 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 Ram­rez 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 Ram­rez and although their construction is not directly inspected by Amalia Ram­rez, these classical guitars are finally adjusted in her workshop by her craftsmen, and under her personal supervision.

Nice guitar but could be nicer.

Comments about Jose Ramirez 4NE Classical Guitar:

See above.
The tuning machines work but not the greatest. I'm not sure if the fingerboard is ebony. No complaints with the rest.
I had this guitar for about a year now. It has a cedar top so the sound is supposed be open but my experience is that it has opened up a lot since it was new. Now it has a little more volume and has a warmer tone. Also the D string was dull when new. I experimented with many different brands of strings. A thinner diameter D seems to sound much better and as the sound opened up D string also got better. The construction is very nice, however it developed a 1.5 " crack behind the bridge after about 6 months. It is barely visible and it doesn't seem to effect the sound so it doesn't bother me much. Hopefully it won't get longer. The other issue is that the intonation is not bad but could have been better. I filed the bridge under D string to move the contact point away from the sound hole and I also modified the nut (brought 4 lower strings closer to the first fret. Now the intonation is almost perfect. What I don't quite understand is why make such a nice guitar and not finish it with french polish. I think that'd make the biggest difference. Neck is nicely made, easy to play. I did have to lower the strings at the bridge end.
Nowadays everything that is good quality is so expensive. I think if they finished it with french polish they'd have added another thousand to the price. But for 3 grand at least they could have finished the sound board with french polish. When you buy a Ramirez you know you are getting a quality instrument (even if it is outsourced like this model) It is possible to get a better quality guitar from a small luthier shop if you have time to look around but if not this is a good guitar.

Comments about Jose Ramirez 4NE Classical Guitar:

I have a handmade Thames classical (Serial 139) which is over 20 years old, I needed a good practice/backup guitar. This Ramirez is not as loud as my Thames, but it is a great starter guitar for the serious student. Ramirez makes this as a student guitar, and therefore is an entry level in their line. This guitar is not made for the large venue, but sounds great in an intimate setting. I wish I had it when I was a student, instead I used a Alvarez/Yari classical. The Ramirez blows that out of the water. Since it is a student guitar, it is not French Polished; to do so would probably make it so much easier for the student to damage the top. To my ears, the sound is minimal. It still sounds great!

The Ramirez is made extremely well, with no blemishes on my model. The sound is a bit stale at first, but have no fear, it opens up quite nicely as it ages. Mine is now about a year old, and it is very warm, especially in the higher registers.

I love it because the sound is so balanced! I have to struggle at times with my Thames to get the bass not to overpower my treble, but it is almost effortless on the Ramirez. Ramirez strings seems to sound best on this guitar, as D'Addario Pro Art's just make it sound lifeless and dull.

If you are a student who is serious about classical, or you are a hobbyist that cannot afford the higher lines of Ramirez, you can't go wrong by ordering one of these!

Comments about Jose Ramirez 4NE Classical Guitar:

I have been tinkering with guitars off and on for forty years - mostly finger style on my now 27 year old Martin D-28. After careful selection, I chose the Ramirez 4ne for my exploits into classical guitar. I tried many classical guitars including the 1a and could not justify paying more than the $3000 I paid for the 4ne. I think this guitar would be fine for all novice players and I believe many professionals. In my short time experimenting with used classical guitars French polished, I did not notice any sound improvement but did notice pit marks on the tops. I am glad Ramirez uses high gloss at this level of quality. In summary, the finish is beautiful, tone fantastic and action setup on mine was as close to perfect as can be expected. Love my 4ne.
