Amalia Ramirez is in Athens…

The daughter of Jose Ramirez III, today the director of the homonym leading constructional guitar house, Amalia Ramirez, is today present in Athens…(D.S. “Eleftheros Typos” 7-Feb-2009–leading Greek newspaper on the event-day).

It was a great honor for all of us to present an “Honorary tribute to Amalia Ramirez and the Tradition of her Family”.

Today, the 1st of Feb. 2010, we refresh in our memories the beautiful presence of Amalia and Cristina in the Benaki concert hall, which was full of aficionados and experts of the music world, who came to give to them all their love, appreciating deeply their superior work and their unique tradition. It was a historical night, filled with strong emotions and the aftereffects were also extremely moving, because so many people would like to see Amalia and Cristina come again.

Behind the lights and the typical event details, was the deep friendship, the lovable characters and the respect and love we all felt for the daughter and the granddaughter of the greatest galaxies on the scene of guitar construction: Jose Ramirez III, who will always be with us, with his lovable, kind and affectionate personality. When I presented the “mathematic model of the guitar”, on the 7th Feb. 1983, in Musik Messe, Frankfurt, at the press conference, he was there, with his beloved wife Mrs. Ramirez and recognized it as the “model, which is the basis for making the ideal guitar” the “model, which belongs to the tradition”. He was the only active luthier in the world, who used the model and knew it and he will always remain for all of us, the inspirational great Maestro of guitar construction. We all thank you Amalia and Cristina from our hearts, for honoring us with your presence and we wish you and all your family and staff happiness and to keep us always inspired with your wonderful, superior and fascinating instruments.
