Note: The 130 Años is discontinued, and has been replaced by the Guitarra del Tiempo
The name 130 Años refers to one hundred and thirty years of building fine classical guitars. Worldwide, the Ramírez name is immediately associated with quality, longevity, tradition, innovation, and creativity, as well as a long list of great virtuosos that have chosen it for decades.
Ramírez has had a close relationship with Japan for many years, so when the country was devastated by the Tsunami, Amalia Ramírez immediately thought of paying homage. That's exactly what this guitar is. A tribute to the people of Japan who have courageously moved forward after such adversity.
The 130 Años is a professional guitar with a clean and romantic tone. It represents the high standards of a brand that keeps evolving and reinventing itself to deliver the best instruments possible at very reasonable prices. String separation is very good. The instrument has very nice sustain especially on the second and third strings, and a breathtaking timbre on the middle section. An absolute gorgeous limited edition with a charm of its own and a lovely sound.
This classical guitar is among the few; the very privileged and praiseworthy that already have a place in the history of the instrument and that, as of next year, when its production stops, will be greatly missed.
Order it with a Zero Glide Nut!
