José Ramírez information
José Ramírez is one of Spain’s best guitar makers and his guitars have been strummed by a host of flamenco greats and international musicians (including the Beatles). Using Honduran cedar, Cameroonian ebony and Indian or Madagascan rosewood, among other materials, and based on traditions dating back over generations, this is craftsmanship of the highest order.
