MEDAL FROM THE ANDRS SEGOVIA FOUNDATION

Last Friday, November 7th, I had the honor of receiving Andrs Segovias Foundation Medal on behalf of my great-granduncle Manuel Ramrez, my father Jos Ramrez III and my brother Jos Ramrez IV for the honor it has been for them, as well as for all of us, that Andrs Segovia has been using and valuing the guitars they have been constructing. My nephews Cristina and Jos Enrique Ramrez came with me to this event representing the future of our guitarrera as its fifth generation.

One more time, Mr Alberto Lpez Poveda, was able to astonish me with his energy and his unbreakable will for doing things well, because he makes them with his heartHow could it be any other way? So, aged 99, he walked the stage to talk about my family, one by one, as a preamble of the medal ceremony. This tribute was really moving for me, especially as it came from someone I admire because of his integrity, generosity and his profound loyalty to his friend Andrs Segovia.




Handcraft from 1882
Jos Ramrez guitars are constructed from aged wood of the finest quality. Great care has been taken to use no wood before its time. Wood that is characteristic of generations past: Cedar, Ebony, German Spruce, Cypress, Indian Rosewood, and Jacaranda. Lately we are using the best quality of authorised rosewood and Red Cedar, which was first used by my father, Jos Ramrez III when he discovered its sonorous qualities.

I personally supervise the construction process from start to finish, and all of the guitars must receive my final approval to indicate they are of the highest quality. My desire is to practice the time honored tradition of my fathers and build the very best guitar possible.
