After 50 years of noodling with a succession of nylon string guitars, I was finally in a position to indulge in what I consider the gold standard and bought a spruce Ramirez Del Tiempo instrument from XGuitars. At first, I had a little trouble getting used to the Ramirez strings, and I almost replaced them right off the bat with my standard Savarez cristal solistes, but after a few days of familiarization, I started to adjust to the "factory" strings, and will now continue to use them until they wear out. As far as the guitar itself, I'm completely gobsmacked by the build quality. As I've told a few friends, the closer you look, the more perfect it is. I've started to resurrect pieces I haven't played in years, just for the pleasure of hearing them on this wonderful instrument.
I want to give a shout-out to Geoff for his thoughtfulness and professionalism during the audition process. When I arrived at our appointment, he had all the instruments I was interested in arrayed on stands convenient to the chair and footstool and left me to my own devices. What more could you ask for, to be surrounded by top-end guitars and at liberty to try them all. Choosing the one for me turned out to be a little more challenging than I had anticipated, but now after two weeks with the Ramirez I'm convinced it was the right choice. The proof of the pudding is that practicing is fun again, for the first time in many years.
