JOS RAMREZ IS HISTORY

It all started in Salvatierra of Alava, town founded in 1256 by Alfonso X the Wise, villa of great importance in the eighteenth century, a crossroads of culture, music, commerce ... among France, the Basque Country, Navarra, La Rioja and Castilla, and located in the center of the Camino de Santiago. In this town Domingo Ramirez de Galarreta y Martnez de Abad was born, father of Jos Ramrez I, also born in the same locality.

It is said that there is nothing like doing those things one was born for and be brave enough to carry them out. And although nobody said it would be easy, it really is satisfactory when one goes for the things dictated by ones heart.




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.
